Radiation Therapists

A Radiation Therapist calculates the radiation plan and operates the equipment used to deliver the overall treatment plan set out by the Radiation Oncologist. They use advanced technology and imaging to ensure minimal damage to healthy tissue surrounding the tumour.

Radiation Therapists look after much of the day-to-day practicalities of treatment, so patients undergoing radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy) become very familiar with their team of radiation therapists.

Radiation Therapists are also able to answer any questions or concerns that patients have about their cancer or treatment, or direct them to the appropriate health care professional.
