Comprehensive Radiation Oncology Services
Our Cancer Centers offer the most comprehensive radiation oncology services,

Elekta Infinity™. Radiation therapy is a treatment method for cancer involving the
use of targeted radiation to shrink or eliminate cancer growth. It can
be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments such as surgery
or chemotherapy. Radiation treatments are continually advancing. The advancements
have resulted in greater protection of your organs as well as more precise,
laser guided targeting of the radiation therapy. At RWJBarnabas Health,
