State-of-the-Art Radiation Oncology Technology Can Be Found at Good Samaritan

Good Samaritan offers state-of-the-art Radiation Therapy close to home because we understand how important it is for patients facing cancer to have the encouragement and support of family and friends nearby.

Radiation therapy is a common treatment for cancer and is used in more than half of all cancer cases. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to destroy cancer. Radiation therapy can be used as a primary cancer treatment or as an adjuvant (in addition) therapy all with surgery and/or chemotherapy. Our Radiation Oncology department has the most up-to-date equipment, including a CT simulator with tumor localization and 4DCT capabilities, 3-D computerized treatment planning system, and two state-of-the-art linear accelerators with onboard imaging and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) capabilities. We are able to deliver the radiation treatment precisely to the tumor area and avoid unnecessary exposure to the surrounding healthy tissue through the use of image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) and intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT).

Our highly skilled, board certified staff includes radiation therapists, nurses, radiation oncologists, medical physicist, and dosimetrist, all of whom consistently exceed expectations in patient satisfaction. The primary goal of the radiation oncology team at Good Samaritan is to treat each patient with care and compassion they deserve. What sets us apart from other facilities with Radiation Oncology treatment capabilities is that all of our staff makes their homes and lives in Knox County or other close by communities. This is where we not only work, it is where we live and care for our neighbors, friends and family members with whom we have real, personal connections. We truly care about and are invested in our patient’s outcomes and experiences on a personal level.
