Radiation Therapy, sometimes called radiotherapy, effectively treats cancer by using high-energy rays to pinpoint and destroy cancerous cells. Although radiation therapy is similar to having an x-ray taken of a broken bone, the dose of radiation in cancer treatment is stronger and is given over a longer period of time. The radiation therapy team at Harrington Cancer Center, led by Jaime Zusman, M.D., provides state-of-the-art treatment.
The safest, most modern radiation therapy equipment is used at Harrington Cancer Center. Harrington Cancer Center also provides a clinic in Pampa for the follow-up of radiation oncology patients.
The Harrington Cancer Center Department of Radiation Therapy is accredited by the American College of Radiology and the American Society for Radiation Oncology.
