2 years experience
Radiation therapy is an integral part of the comprehensive cancer
care that we provide at Moffitt Cancer Center. Designed to help
kill cancerous cells, shrink tumors and alleviate symptoms,
radiation-based treatments are used in the management of many
different types and stages of cancer.
While radiation therapy relies heavily on advanced machines and new
technologies, even more important are the oncologists who provide
it. Even the best equipment must be placed in more-than-capable
hands to be exceptionally effective. Patients in Moffitt's
Radiation Oncology Program receive care from a multispecialty
radiation oncology team. Many of our radiation oncologists
specialize in treating just one or two specific cancers. That means
that patients will work with oncologists who understand the unique
challenges of their situation.
Our Radiation Oncology Department consists of:
--- Radiation oncologists, who are responsible for designing a
patient's radiation therapy plan and coordinating the details with
other department members
--- Radiation therapists, who are trained to operate the advanced
treatment machines used to generate radioactive beams
--- Dosimetrists, who are responsible for programming the equipment
that delivers precise doses of radiation to the targeted areas
while minimizing exposure for healthy tissues; they are also
responsible for running computer simulations before a patient's
plan is implemented
--- Physicists, who help commission new equipment, run quality
control tests and otherwise ensure that patients receive their
prescribed doses and dose distributions
--- Nursing specialists, nutritionists, counselors and other
support staff, who make sure all of a patient's needs are fully met
throughout the course of treatment
Moffitt's Radiation Oncology Program is accredited by the American
College of Radiology (ACR). To obtain this accreditation, we
completed a rigorous review process that ensured proper training
and certification for our staff members, making them exceptionally
qualified to perform and administer radiation treatments.
Additionally, our radiation therapy equipment was found to meet or
exceed the quality assurance and safety guidelines established by
