Radiation Treatment Options

Dr_ Kathryn Greven treating Radiation Oncology patient

Part of why cancer has become so treatable in the past decade is because of major advances in radiation treatment. Targeting cancer cells through radioactive beams is a challenging process, as nearby critical tissues need to be shielded from exposure. By using computers and images of the size and location of tumors, physicians, physicists and dosimetrists can determine the optimal way to deliver the prescribed dose of radiation to the tumor, while minimizing the dose to normal, critical structures.
