Radiation Oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with the art, science and discipline of the management of malignant diseases and selected benign conditions using ionizing radiation. It closely collaborates with surgical oncology and medical oncology to provide a multi-disciplinary team approach in the treatment of cancer patients.

 

Service offered by the department is external beam radiation therapy using photon and electron energies. This is achieved using a complement of equipment consisting of advanced linear accelerator, simulator and molding machines. Supplementary tools such as immobilization devices, shielding blocks and breast cradles make daily treatment reproducible and precise.

 

 

 

To date, the department personnel consists of fifteen (15) visiting radiation oncologists duly recognized by the Philippine College of Radilogy, seven (7) registered radiologic technologists, one (1) full-time certified medical physicist and one (1) receptionist/secretary.

The department envisions itself to be a radiation oncology center of excellence in Asia with competent and caring staff in a patient-centered world-class facility dedicated to the advancement of the treatment, training and research in cancer.
