The Department of Therapeutic Radiology works closely with the Yale Cancer Center to comprehensively evaluate and treat patients in need of any form of radiation therapy. We are widely known for our innovative approach to treatment, and have extensive experience in the following specialized areas:
Breast cancer radiotherapy
Central nervous system radiotherapy
Head and neck radiotherapy
Prostate and genitourinary cancer radiotherapy
Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and Gamma Knife® radiosurgery
Total skin electron beam therapy (TSEBT)
Our primary goal is to ensure our patients receive the right amount of radiation at the tumor site, with as little impact as possible on the surrounding healthy tissue. Our treatment planning program, also known as medical dosimetry, is focused on just that, providing a highly individualized external or internal radiation treatment course for each patient.
