Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer


Radiation oncologists specialize in the treatment of cancer using radiation therapies and methods. They work closely with other members of the patient’s care team to develop the best treatment plan. They also monitor patients’ progress and adjust treatment as necessary to ensure the radiation is hitting its target while minimizing side effects.

Join Dr. Schlager with the Avera Cancer Institute as she discusses the process of radiation therapy and how it can be used as a tool to treat cancer.
