Radiation Therapy

At University of Maryland, our radiation oncologists have pioneered new radiation treatment technologies, such as the GammaPod for early-stage breast cancer. Our precision treatment options include stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), which pinpoints tumors with higher doses of radiation delivered in fewer treatment sessions while sparing nearby normal cells.

For patients with liver cancer, we have one of the most experienced selective internal radiation therapy centers in the country. We also offer brachytherapy, which safely delivers radiation from a source implanted into a tumor and hyperthermia which uses gentle heat before treatment to make radiation therapy work even better.

At the Maryland Proton Treatment Center (MPTC), we offer pencil beam scanning proton therapy, the most advanced form of proton therapy in the world. MPTC's expert physicians are different, with more than 50 years of combined proton therapy experience treating all types of cancer.
