Department Description

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).
