What is Radiation Therapy?

Radiation therapy uses advanced technology to treat cancer with high energy x-rays to treat disease. It can be used alone or in combination with surgery and/or chemotherapy to cure or control cancer.

The equipment used to generate these x-rays are called linear accelerators. Linear accelerators are similar to the machines which takes x-ray pictures except the energy is much higher and more precisely focused.

This precise focus enables our team of experts to carefully calculate the amount and exact location of the radiation delivered, and allows us to limit the dosage to the tissues surrounding the tumor.
