Radiation Oncology

Choice Cancer Care – A Renowned Clinic for Radiation Therapy in Texas

Radiation therapy uses high-energy particles or waves, such as x-rays, gamma rays, electron beams, or protons, to eliminate or damage cancer cells. Radiation therapy is also called radiotherapy, irradiation, or x-ray therapy.

Radiation therapy is commonly used for cancer treatment. Many times it is the major treatment for certain types of cancer, such as cancers of the head and neck, bladder and lung. Many other cancers are also treated with radiation therapy. After getting radiation treatments many patients become cancer free.

Radiation therapy can be administered independently or used in combination with other cancer treatments, such as surgery or chemotherapy.

Radiation therapy uses specialized equipment to send high doses of radiation to the cancer cells. This radiation damages cancer cells and causes them to die

Radiation therapy is usually a local treatment, whereas chemotherapy exposes the whole body to cancer-fighting drugs. Radiation therapy is targeted only to the part of the body being treated to damage as many cancer cells as possible, but delivering minimal harm to healthy tissue that is around the area being treated.

Radiation options currently offered by Choice Cancer Care:

Radiation Therapy with intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) combines extremely precise tumor imaging techniques with delivery of hundreds of thin beams of radiation to the exact tumor location in three-dimensional patterns from any angle. Results are precise control of radiation delivery, reduced radiation dosages, declining complication rates, and fewer side effects. This technology has raised the bar in radiation therapy nationwide. This service is available at both Las Colinas Cancer Center and North Texas Cancer Center of Wise.

Radiation Therapy with Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is recognized as the finest technology available in radiation oncology at this time. This technology allows the radiation beam to be altered depending upon day-to-day movement of the tumor. It is used in combination with intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). This service is available at the Las Colinas Cancer Center.
