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.

Being Black Raises Your Risk for Some Cancers
Being Black Raises Your Risk for Some Cancers

Not only does different cancers affect people differently, but sometimes your race raises your risk of developing cancer or your likelihood of successful treatment. Disparities in cancer rates among different racial and ethnic groups can be related to socioeconomic status, access to healthcare, systemic barriers and cultural factors. To address these disparities, we must all raise awareness, promote early detection and screenings, improve access to quality care and address the social determinants of health that contribute to worse patient outcomes.
