Targeted Treatment with Radiation Oncology & Medical Physics
Radiation oncology is the treatment of cancer through high-energy radiation (like x-rays or gamma rays). Many cancers require a combination of surgical oncology, medical oncology, and radiation oncology.
At the SolutionHealth Cancer Institute, our radiation oncologists work closely with colleagues from Mass General Cancer Center. They use state-of-the-art radiation therapy to shrink tumors or kill cancer cells. We utilize the latest in technology, including the TruBeam© Linear Accelerator, to target your cancer and treat it with precise radiation beams. In some cases, radioactive seeds implanted in the body can be used to target cancer cells.
