The center includes an advanced radiation therapy program that is accredited by the American College of Radiology. Radiation therapy is a form of cancer treatment that uses radiation (strong beams of energy) to kill cancer cells or keep them from growing and dividing. Radiation therapy, including intensity-modulated radiotherapy, may be used in conjunction with surgery or chemotherapy to treat cancer.
