Advanced treatment to fight cancer.
Radiation Therapy at Olathe Health
Radiation therapy is a cancer treatment that uses high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells and stop the spread of them. Radiation used in cancer treatment works similar to that of an X-ray to see inside your body. The difference is that this radiation is given at higher doses.
Many people with cancer need radiation therapy. More than half of people with cancer will receive radiation therapy. Sometimes it may be the only treatment that a cancer patient needs. OMC has invested in state-of-the-art radiation therapy technology, including linear accelerators, CT simulator, treatment planning system and physics equipment.
Radiation therapy itself is not painful. The side effects that you can get from the therapy can cause pain or discomfort. Our support team works with each patient to provide care and support to address treatment side effects.
