Teams of professionals - doctors, nurses, physicists, biologists and radiation therapists - specialize in treating specific cancers, so patients know they are being treated by the best.
As a world leader in radiation oncology, Beaumont radiation oncologists offer the most innovative treatments available, many of which were pioneered right here at Beaumont:
- external-beam radiation - where radiation is delivered from an external machine to the tumor site or targeted location
- proton therapy - using pencil beam scanning for more precise treatment and fewer side effects
- Gamma Knife Radiosurgery - for brain tumors, vascular malformations and neurological disorders
- internal-beam radiation therapy/brachytherapy - radiation treatment given inside the patient with wires, seeds or rods
Beaumont radiation oncologists are on the leading edge of identifying new treatments and techniques to ensure the most precise treatment available, using techniques such as adaptive radiation therapy, image-guided radiation therapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy and metabolically guided radiation therapy.Learn more by making an appointment to consult with a radiation oncologist.
