Radiation Therapists are health care professionals skilled in the art and science of medical radiation treatment delivery. The majority of patients receiving radiation therapy have cancer. Along with surgery and chemotherapy, radiation therapy offers these patients the best chance to succeed in the fight against their disease. Major focus areas are the care and assessment of patients, simulation, treatment planning, and delivery of treatments using linear accelerators and radioisotopes. High technology equipment and innovative treatment methods maximize treatment effectiveness. Radiation therapists must have excellent technical skills, and also be empathetic and effective communicators. Radiation therapy can be a very rewarding career.
