Urologic Cancer – Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy treatments use high power energy waves to destroy cancer cells.

CT Simulation

Treatment planning sessions allow the radiation oncology team to plan the best set-up that will enable them to most effectively target the prostate (or other body part) so that it affects as little healthy tissue as possible.

Fiducial Marker Placement

For some types of radiation therapy, such as prostate cancer, fiducial markers are implanted in a process similar to a biopsy.
