Radiotherapy is an integral part of a multidisciplinary cancer treatment program. Radiation therapy can be given alone as a treatment. Radiation therapy services can also be combined with surgery or chemotherapy to enhance treatment.
The program is equipped with the only MRI-guided radiation delivery system in the east coast, five modern linear accelerators, a Gamma Knife, CT simulation, and a high-dose rate brachytherapy unit to provide radiation treatment for children with cancer.
