In the Vasek Polak Radiation Oncology Department, women have access to the latest in radiation therapy technology including the Trilogy™ linear accelerator, which allows patients to receive higher-dose radiation treatments precisely targeted to the tumor in shorter sessions. This keeps you more comfortable, spares healthy tissue and may even improve your overall outcome.

Radiation treatments today are very precise, resulting in little harm to surrounding skin or healthy tissues. It is generally very well tolerated, but after approximately three weeks there may be some side effects, such as a sunburn-like condition on the skin, fatigue, discoloration of the skin, or swelling and heaviness in the breast.

Your Margie Petersen Breast Center Nurse Navigator and physician will provide education and details about your personalized care prior to you beginning treatment.
