Radiologic Sciences: Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy is an exciting, rewarding and challenging field. Radiation Therapists deliver daily radiation treatments to cancer patients to ensure the treatments are accurately and safely administered. Radiation therapists must possess strong communication skills, be detail oriented, be able to work with all members of the oncology team and be comfortable using state-of-the-art technology.

Students interested in the Radiologic Sciences programs must understand that there is a potential to being exposed to a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) environment. The MRI environment consists of strong magnetic fields and radiofrequency waves which may be contraindicated for individuals that have devices implanted in or on their body that should not be subjected to an MRI environment. Additional information regarding MRI safety can be found on the internet and at the following web site: www.mrisafety.com.
