About radiation

Our radiation treatment program provides consultation, planning and delivery of radiation treatment for a wide variety of cancers.

We are a highly specialized referral centre for:

  • Image-guided intensity modulated radiation treatment: This type of radiation is delivered under CT guidance and allows for precise delivery of radiation doses to the cancer and sparing of normal organs and tissues.
  • Brachytherapy: Our centre has specific expertise in image-guided brachytherapy for prostate, gynaecological and breast cancer
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery: This type of treatment allows for large doses of radiation delivered under image guidance to tumours within or located near the brain and spinal cord.
  • Multi-modality and concurrent treatment: Here, radiation therapy is integrated in a treatment program including surgery and chemotherapy in a multi-disciplinary model of care.
