Knox County Radiation Therapy
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.
