Lutheran General's radiation oncology department in the Cancer Care Center offers state-of-the-art technology and radiation therapy techniques capable of precisely targeting treatment areas while minimizing effects on surrounding normal tissues.
Onsite at the center are skilled radiation oncology physicians who work closely with other specialists, medical oncologists and surgeons to ensure the best treatment plans and support for patients. In addition, they train many other health care professionals through their research initiatives, publications, medical school teaching appointments, and local and national lectures on the latest cancer treatments.
The team also includes nurses with specialized expertise in radiation oncology, radiation therapists who are all American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certified, and medical physicists and dosimetrists who collaborate with radiation oncologists to design the most efficient and effective treatment plan for each patient.
