Baystate Regional Cancer Program (BRCP) physicians customize treatment plans for each patient. These often combine radiation therapy with other cancer treatment options (such as chemotherapy and surgery). The goal is an individual treatment plan with the highest likelihood of a successful outcome.
BRCP - Radiation Oncology is responsible for prescribing, delivering and monitoring the radiation therapy component of the care our patients receive.
Our mission is to provide the highest quality treatment in a safe and effective manner while at the same time providing emotional support in a comfortable and convenient setting.
We contribute to BRCP's well-earned reputation as the most advanced cancer care facility in western Massachusetts by having the widest range of radiation oncology services available and our use of state-of-the-art technology. We are a national show site for Siemens, a leading supplier of advanced radiation therapy equipment. This gives our patients local access to advanced CT simulation and linear accelerators which enable superior tumor localization and reduce damage to surround healthy tissue during radiation.
High-dose brachytherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, and prostate seed implants round out our comprehensive radiation oncology services.
