Welcome to Radiation Oncology
Welcome to the Department of Radiation Oncology at UT Southwestern, where state-of-the-art radiation technology meets human caring and compassion.
Our doctors, physicists, and researchers have devoted their lives to better understanding cancer and its treatment. Noted for groundbreaking research by our internationally recognized team, we deliver state-of-the art care to patients with all types and all stages of cancer. We are the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in North Texas and one of only 49 NCI-designated comprehensive care centers in the nation. As such, we are held to the highest of standards and are recognized for excellence in clinical care, as well as scientific research and leadership. In addition, we are one of the largest practices in the Southwest.
Unlike many other facilities, our radiation oncologists each have a subspecialty in treating a particular type of cancer, so that the doctors who treat breast cancer are not the same as those who treat brain or prostate cancer. Combining this in-depth expertise with the powerful technology at our facilities, our physicians are enabled to provide superior care to patients.
Radiation Oncology Expansion
In fall of 2019, we broke ground on a 71,000-square-foot expansion that will include 27 exams rooms, seven treatment rooms, a minor procedure room, patient support room, a training room, and academic space.
Our new space will have simulations and treatment technology, including a CT scan, HDR brachytherapy suite, Philips MRI-RT simulator, two Varian Ethos systems, two Varian Halcyon systems, and two Elekta Unity MR-Linac systems.
