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.

To help ensure success in the diagnosis and treatment of cancers and diseases, we have developed ongoing relationships with the following institutions:

This collaboration between institutions allows our team to be amongst the first to access any newly researched technologies.

This gives our team a unique opportunity to devise applications for improving the diagnosing of cancers and developing innovative therapeutic treatments. So when you enter our facilities, you can rest assured that the very best minds and machines are devoted to your care.

As part of a teaching institution, the Department of Radiation Medicine's faculty and staff will give presentations both within the department and around the world sharing their knowledge with others studying the field of medicine. Review the department's academic meetings presentations here
