Spokane CyberKnife & Radiation Oncology Center at Summit Cancer Centers is proud to offer patients the most advanced radiation treatment technologies and methods for curing cancers.
What Is Radiation Oncology?
Radiation therapy is a treatment that uses high-energy x-rays (photons) to kill, shrink, or control the growth of tumors. Radiation therapy works by damaging cells, disabling them from growing and dividing.
The goal of any radiation treatment is to destroy cancer cells while minimizing the side effects on healthy tissue. As imaging technologies have improved over the last several decades, radiation therapy has integrated those improvements to enhance dose delivery and minimize side effects. Radiation may be recommended as an alternative to surgery or in addition to other therapies.
