Radiation Oncology

Radiation Oncology is a medical specialty that utilizes different forms of radiation to safely and effectively treat cancer and other diseases. Radiation treatment is used to treat cancer, to control the growth of cancer, and to relieve pain and other symptoms. Recent advances in radiation technology are allowing a higher quality of life while minimizing side effects. Radiation therapy may be used alone or in combination with other treatments, such as surgery or chemotherapy.
