Radiation Therapy

Bringing you the most advanced options for your cancer care

Not only is the treatment at the Southeast Cancer Center provided by leading cancer specialists, the technology is also state-of-the-art. When the center opened in February 2011, the department debuted two new, identical linear accelerators which provide targeted radiation treatment with pinpoint accuracy. By generating beams of radiation that can be conformed to exactly match the dimensions of cancerous tumors, cancer cells can be destroyed while leaving healthy surrounding tissue unaffected.

Linear accelerators can be used to treat a variety of cancers including brain, breast, colon, head and neck, lung, prostate, gynecologic, bladder and skin cancers, as well as lymphomas.
