Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapists are radiologic technologists who administer highly focused forms of radiation to treat cancer and other diseases. As part of the radiation oncology team, radiation therapists work with radiation oncologists, medical physicists, medical dosimetrists, and nurses, all responsible for treating many types of cancer. Radiologic technologists are the medical personnel who perform diagnostic imaging examinations and administer radiation therapy treatments. Radiologic technologists who perform imaging examinations are responsible for accurately positioning patients and ensuring that a quality diagnostic image is produced. Radiographic images are also used to plan radiation therapy treatment and verify the patient position prior to treatment. Radiation therapy applicants are encouraged to examine the various radiologic and imaging sciences described at the following link: www.asrt.org The Radiation Therapy Technology Program prepares graduates to work in the field of Radiation Oncology. Radiation therapists are responsible for providing cancer patients with appropriate treatment and patient care throughout all stages of their illness. With additional training and/or advanced degrees, a therapist has career opportunities in a variety of areas such as medical physics, dosimetry, and management. Opportunities also exist in the field of training and sales for major vendors of radiation therapy equipment
