PET Based Planning

In our commitment to providing personalized and effective radiation therapy, BMCHRC utilizes PET-based planning to enhance treatment accuracy and efficacy. By incorporating Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans into the treatment planning process, we are able to precisely delineate tumor boundaries and identify areas of active disease. This enables us to tailor radiation doses to target specific areas while sparing healthy tissue, leading to improved outcomes and reduced side effects for our patients.


Brachytherapy is a vital component of our comprehensive radiation oncology services at BMCHRC. With this technique, we deliver radiation directly to the tumor site by placing radioactive sources inside or close to the tumor. This allows for high doses of radiation to be delivered precisely to the affected area while minimizing exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. Whether used alone or in combination with other treatments, brachytherapy offers a targeted approach to cancer treatment, improving outcomes and quality of life for our patients.

Empowering Patients Through Education

At BMCHRC's Radiation Oncology Services, we prioritize patient education to ensure informed decision-making and confidence throughout the radiation therapy process.

From dedicated patient navigators and oncology nurses to social workers and support groups, our multidisciplinary team is committed to providing compassionate care, guidance, and resources to help patients cope with the demands of treatment and maintain their overall well-being.

Continuous Monitoring and Follow Up Care

Our commitment to patient care extends beyond the completion of radiation therapy. We provide ongoing monitoring and follow-up care to ensure that patients receive the necessary support and assistance during their recovery period. Through regular check-ups, imaging scans, and consultations, we track patients' progress, address any lingering side effects or concerns, and adjust their care plans as needed. By offering continuous support and guidance, we strive to promote healing, enhance quality of life, and empower patients to lead fulfilling lives beyond cancer treatment.

Our Doctors

Meet our esteemed team of medical professionals, each equipped with years of specialized expertise and unwavering dedication to patient care.

At BMCHRC, we offer Intraoperative Radiotherapy (IORT) as part of our advanced radiation therapy options. This innovative technique delivers a concentrated dose of radiation directly to the tumor bed during surgery, immediately after the tumor has been removed. By precisely targeting the affected area while sparing nearby healthy tissues and organs, IORT reduces the risk of recurrence and minimizes potential side effects. This approach not only enhances treatment effectiveness but also offers the convenience of completing radiation therapy in a single session, providing our patients with comprehensive and streamlined care.
