Part of an integrated approach to cancer care
Radiation therapy, or radiotherapy, is often a key element to treating cancer.
Radiation is used to kill cancer cells by preventing them from multiplying. Radiation destroys the cells’ DNA, helping to cure or control cancer, or alleviating some of the symptoms associated with cancer.
Radiation may be used alone or 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 part of Tanner Medical Group, Tanner Radiation Oncology provides access to the full continuum of care available through Tanner Cancer Care and Tanner’s Roy Richards, Sr. Cancer Center.
