Part of an Integrated Approach to Cancer Care

There are many things that factor into a successful approach to battling cancer, and radiation therapy is often a key element. Radiation, in various forms, is used to kill cancer cells by preventing them from multiplying. Radiation destroys the cells’ DNA, helping to cure or control cancer, or to alleviate some of the symptoms associated with cancer.

Radiation oncology treatment may be used alone or in conjunction with other types of treatment, such as surgery or chemotherapy – the use of anticancer drugs to treat cancerous cells – as well as other treatments.

As a member of Tanner Medical Group, Tanner Radiation Oncology provides access to the full continuum of care available through Tanner Cancer Care and the Roy Richards, Sr. Cancer Center.

Tanner Radiation Oncology specializes in providing a range of treatment options, including:

  • External beam radiation therapy (EBRT)
  • High dose rate brachytherapy (HDR)
  • Varian Trilogy with RapidArc&™ radiotherapy
  • Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT)
  • Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
  • MammoSite RTS&™ breast cancer treatment
  • Prostate seed treatment
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery and radio therapy (SRS, SRT)
  • Superficial radiation therapy
  • Three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT)

The level and type of radiation used will be determined by the radiation oncologist based on the type of cancer, location of the tumor and sensitivity of the surrounding tissue.
