Tanner Radiation Oncology 

With a unique, integrated approach to cancer care.


Radiation therapy, or radiotherapy, is often a key element to treating cancer.

Part of an Integrated Approach to Cancer Care

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.

Tanner Radiation Oncology specializes in cancer treatments, 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 radiotherapy (SRS, SRT)
  • Superficial radiation therapy
  • Three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT)

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