    The Department of Radiation Medicine offers patients the most advanced cancer care in a supportive setting. We provide a variety of individualized treatment options for our patients. Our goal is to provide the most up-to-date cancer therapy in a socially and emotionally supportive setting to help our patients cope with their diagnosis and treatment.

    As part of the dynamic UK Markey Cancer Center, Radiation Medicine enjoys a close relationship with a variety of specialty teams, including medical oncology, surgical oncology, anesthesiology (pain management) and various surgical sub-specialties. Those multidisciplinary teams ensure excellent continuity of care and integration of needed services. Patient care is carefully coordinated to assure that the unique needs of each individual treated are identified and addressed in a caring and compassionate manner.

    UK Brain & Body Radiosurgery Program
    The revolution in computers and new imaging techniques have enabled us to closely target cancers and deliver potentially curative doses of radiation in just a few sessions. UK Radiation Medicine has developed the UK Brain & Body Radiosurgery Program to treat cancers which are localized or limited to one area of the brain or body. This program provides the most advanced, up-to-date cancer treatment available in the USA. The UK Brain & Body Radiosurgery Program combines two of the most modern technologies available for superior, non-invasive cancer treatment: Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ brain radiosurgery and the TomoTherapy® Hi-Art® treatment system.
