Treatment Sessions

Radiation Treatment Sessions

The first treatment session consists of radiation therapists taking verification films to assure that the blocking is accurately protecting the areas designated by the radiation oncologist. These blocks are customized for each patient's treatment.

After this initial treatment session, the patient returns daily at the same time for their treatment. The patient, staff and radiation oncologist meet weekly to evaluate the patient's progress, discussion of side effects and changes in care if necessary.

Family members are welcome at these appointments.
