The Section of Radiation Oncology under the Department of Oncology at AKUH treats various forms of cancers. Radiation oncologists work closely with medical oncologists, and other experts to devise the right treatment plan for our patients.
Radiation therapy uses carefully targeted and regulated doses of high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells. Radiation causes some cancer cells to die immediately after treatment, but most die or become incapacitated because of the radiation-induced damage to the cancer cell's chromosomes and DNA.
Our Radiation oncologists work with an interdisciplinary team of experts from different departments to provide optimal care for your health condition.
