Radiation Oncology


Welcome
Radiation Oncology (or Radiation Therapy or Radiotherapy) is the treatment of cancer using high-energy radiation, with approximately one half of all cancer patients require radiation therapy during some phase of their cancer treatment. At the Albany Medical Center, we are committed to providing the highest standard of care for our patients and offering the latest technological advancements and capabilities in radiation therapy.

The Albany Medical Center Advantage
The Radiation Oncology team is focused on providing the most complete, highest quality care for each and every patient. Every member of our team -- from our front desk receptionists and the doctors, nurses, and therapists who you see every day to the medical physics and dosimetry staff -- work together to achieve this goal. We maintain open, steady communication with the medical oncologists and surgeons involved in your care, so that your experience at Albany Medical Center is coordinated and seamless. And, as expected in an academic medical center, we offer state-of-the-art treatment care options found nowhere else in the region.
