The core of the Department of Radiation Oncology is located at our Center City campus. We have a joint program with Wills Eye Hospital that is unique for the treatment of orbital malignancies.
Research is an integral part of this department and faculty. A number of protocols involving brachytherapy, monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of brain tumors, and histone 1 for the treatment of leukemias are being investigated. There is also participation in ECOG, COG, NSABP and other national clinical trials.
Newly installed is a Siemens Primus Dual Energy Linear Accelerator offering the most advanced technology with the advantage of IMRT. This offers the enhanced ability to pinpoint radiation more precisely for hard-to-treat areas.
