Phoebe Radiation Oncology in Albany, Georgia

Radiation therapy uses a low-intensity radiation beam to kill cancerous cells. Radiation can be used as a primary treatment or in combination with other methods to reduce the size of a tumor before surgery. Radiation is most useful when treatment needs to be targeted at a precise point in the body.

Today's more advanced diagnostic imaging equipment - such as that used at Phoebe Cancer Center in Albany, Georgia - now allows better mapping of cancer sites and more precise targeting of radiation.

Phoebe's status as a major cancer center in Southwest Georgia gives us the resources to acquire the absolute latest cutting-edge technology for our patients and doctors. The radiation accelerators and imaging equipment are the most advanced available.
