Physicist and Dosimetrist
Our radiation physicist takes precise measurements of the radiation equipment output and ensures that the machine delivers the precise dose of radiation. The dosimetrist aids in carrying out your treatment plan by carefully calculating the dose of radiation you will receive and the daily machine settings/parameters.
Your radiation therapy nurse is a registered nurse trained to implement the plan of care your radiation oncologist prescribes. The nurse administers medications and monitors any possible side effects or adverse reactions.
The radiation therapist delivers a prescribed course of radiation therapy as set forth by your radiation oncologist and maintains daily records of these treatments. The radiation therapist takes weekly X-rays of your treatment site to ensure that proper positioning is accurately maintained throughout your radiation treatments.
