Learn More About Our Types Of Radiation Therapy
Radiation therapy, or radiotherapy, is a treatment approach that uses high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells. Radiation therapy can be used as a primary modality in the treatment of cancer, or after other forms of therapy to prevent a cancer recurrence. Outpatient radiotherapy usually involves delivering a radiation dose divided into fractions that are given over the course of several days or weeks. We use innovative techniques to spare normal tissue from radiation in order to prevent or reduce and manage treatment-related side effects.
We offer state-of-the-art technology in the delivery of cancer treatment. Our team includes board-certified radiation oncologists, nurses, physicists, dosimetrists, and radiation therapists to ensure that the treatment is delivered in accordance with the highest standards of quality.
Our entire process, from the initial consultation to treatment delivery, and long-term follow-up program is subject to the rigorous quality standards of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.

External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT)
A machine called a linear accelerator (LINAC) generates and focuses high-energy beams to deliver radiotherapy at the prescribed dose to the calculated treatment volume. Computer imaging, precise field positioning, and beam intensity modulating technologies guide how your radiotherapy is delivered, and may involve one or more of the following services:
