Radiation Oncology

Radiation therapy uses high-energy radiation to kill or shrink cancer cells. Charged particles, x-rays and gamma rays are radiations used for killing the cancer cells. The radiation therapy can be given through an external beam, (using a machine called a linear accelerator) or internally (brachytherapy). Basically, in a systemic radiation therapy the radiation travels via the bloodstream to kill the cancer cells. However, without the type of precise treatment planning used at AOI, when the cancer cells are destroyed, the DNA can also be damaged as a side effect.

At American Oncology Institute, our physicians plan meticulously to minimize the chance for any side effects. Our expert team of physicists and dosimetrists ensure complete safety while performing the radiation therapies with highly sophisticated equipment and computers. An oncologist may prescribe radiation therapy before, during, or post-surgery depending on the treatment strategy devised collaboratively by American Oncology Institute medical team. Our team of expert oncologists starts the design for each patient’s complete, personalized treatment plan with a simulation. The simulation begins by using detailed imaging scans to determine the location, size, and shape of the tumor in the body.
