Radiation Oncology


The Radiation Oncology Department has considerable experience in treating all types of cancers and benign (noncancerous) tumors. Individual staff members concentrate on specific types of cancer, so patients can benefit from their specialized knowledge. BMC radiation oncologists are also actively involved in researching new and promising cancer treatments through clinical trials.

Clinical Trials

Promising new techniques in the diagnosis, treatment, and care of patients with cancer are tested in research studies called clinical trials. Many patients who participate in clinical trials derive comfort from knowing that the knowledge gained from these trials will make an important contribution to medical science and may help other people with cancer.

BMC is a study site for various cooperative groups, including:

  • CTSU (Cancer Trials Support Unit)
  • NRG Oncology
  • SWOG

Visit the Boston University School of Medicine’s website for a list of currently active clinical trials.
