Department of Radiation Oncology
The Department of Radiation Oncology offers the full range of services using radiation for all patients, from pediatric to adult. Out linear accelerators provide IMRT, IGRT, electromagnetic tracking and robotic table adjustments.
We perform a full range of radioactive implants (brachytherapy) from HDR out-patient treatment to permanent prostate implants and introspective work. Our focused radiation program can perform stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and body radiosurgery (SBRT) all in a convenient out-patient setting.
For your safety, we have the most full time physicists on Staten Island ensuring your treatment is correct. Our therapists are all certified.
The Radiation Oncology Department is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO). SIUH is one of only 16 accredited radiation oncology sites in New York City, and 293 nationwide.
The department provides a full range of supportive care starting with our nursing staff and including dietary, social work and speech and swallowing services.
In addition, we have access to NCI sponsored protocols, and work in collaboration with the out-patient oncology department to provide the latest in therapies for selected sites.
