The high energy rays used for radiation therapy can come from a variety of sources.

The goal of radiation therapy is to get enough radiation into the body to kill the cancer cells while preventing damage to healthy tissue. This is done by using one of several machines, that have the ability to be aimed precisely at the same target or targets, each and every time treatment is given.

    Machines used

    The talents and resources of hundreds of individuals, institutions, and industries must be combined to achieve successful diagnosis and treatment of cancer and other diseases. When you enter our facilities, you can rest assured that the very best minds and machines are being devoted to your care through our partnerships with the following companies:
