The Radiation Therapy that we offer here at CenterPoint Radiation Oncology is essentially a very simple process. When you come in every day, we’re gonna place you on the machine in the exact same position, and we’re gonna take our pictures to make sure that we can see our target and make sure that we’re staying off of the normal tissue.
Radiation Therapy is painless, and you do not feel it. You do not smell it. You do not taste it. We do not stick you with needles and we do not put anything inside your body.
Radiation Therapy is a very quick process. You’re on the table for approximately 10 minutes, but the beam of radiation is only on for about a minute and a half, and we spend the remainder of the time getting you in the exact same position every day and then taking our confirmatory pictures.
