Radiation Oncology is a clinical and scientific specialty devoted to the
management of patients with cancer (and occasionally, a few non-malignant
conditions) through the use of ionizing radiation alone, or in combination
with surgery and/or chemotherapy. Radiation oncology is a highly-integrated,
multidisciplinary medical specialty involving close interactions between
physicians, physicists and dosimetrists, nurses, biomedical scientists,
computer scientists, engineers, radiotherapy technologists, nutritionists,
social workers and other support staff.
The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill is a tertiary care cancer facility and is affiliated with the UNC
School of Medicine, UNC Healthcare, and the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive
Cancer Center. We offer external beam radiotherapy using linear accelerators
(“heliotherapy”), both high and low dose rate interstitial or intracavitary
radiotherapy (“brachytherapy”), total body irradiation, stereotactic
radiosurgery, intraperitoneal P-32, and other specialized therapies for both
the curative and palliative treatment of cancer. The Department also has
active research programs in clinical oncology, radiation biology, and medical
physics, and is an acknowledged world leader in the area of computer-aided
radiotherapy treatment planning (in collaboration with the UNC Departments of
Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, and Radiology).
