The Radiation Oncology Department at the Sibley Cancer Center is an innovative program with nationally recognized experts in the field. Our doctors and staff will take as much time as necessary to help patients and their families understand their options and feel comfortable with their choices.
Once you and your physician have agreed to move forward with radiation oncology, the next steps in identifying the best treatment plan involves getting to know you and your family in order to best understand your medical situation. To schedule this consultation with one of our radiation oncology specialists, you'll need a referral from your primary care physician or from a medical specialist such as an urologist, surgeon, or medical oncologist.
The consultation process will determine if radiation therapy would be beneficial for you. If you are a candidate for radiation therapy and you consent to begin treatment, the next step in the clinical process is the scheduling of a CT simulation procedure. Your nursing team will contact you with instructions to prepare you for your simulation appointment.
At Sibley we offer the following radiation therapy options:
- Proton Therapy
- Conventional Radiation Therapy
- 3D Conformal
- Active Breathing Coordinator
