Advanced treatment to target your cancer.
About Radiation Oncology
When considering cancer treatments, you want to know about all the options and which ones might be right for you. For many types of cancer, advanced radiation therapy can be used to target cancer cells. Ascension radiology care teams are here to offer experience and compassion.
Ascension’s skilled cancer specialists will listen to you, answer your questions and discuss whether radiation therapy is the right option for your cancer treatment. Then, together, we will develop a personalized care plan for you.
Precision approach, customized care
It’s natural to be nervous about exposure to radiation. But it is designed to help kill cancer cells or keep them from growing. Targeted radiation helps avoid damaging healthy tissue outside of the cancerous area. Ascension’s oncologists and radiation specialists work together to pinpoint the location of your cancer and identify the right site for your therapy.
Compassionate support for radiation therapy
Whether radiation is your only cancer treatment, or if it’s combined with other treatments like chemotherapy, we’ll help you manage side effects and offer suggestions to help you feel more comfortable.
From your first conversation with your radiation care team to treatment sessions to follow-ups that monitor your progress, our care teams are here to support you every step of the way.
