Maps & Directions

Radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy or RT) uses high energy radiation from x-rays and other sources to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. Radiation may come from a machine outside the body (external radiation therapy) or from materials that produce radiation (radioisotopes) that are placed inside the body in the area where the cancer cells are found (brachytherapy).
