Radiation therapy is a cancer treatment that uses high energy particles or electro-magnetic energy to kill cancer cells and shrink tumours.  What’s involved in this high tech cancer treatment and what can you expect?

Radiation Oncologists oversee your radiation treatment assisted by Radiation Therapists who take the measurements and make calculations to work out how the radiation will best target your cancer accurately and safely.
