If you are considering radiation therapy, you must first schedule a consultation with a radiation oncologist to see if radiation therapy is right for you.
One of our physicians will evaluate your need for radiation therapy and its likely results.
This includes reviewing:
- your current medical problems,
- past medical history,
- past surgical history,
- family history,
- allergies and lifestyle
The doctor will also perform a physical examination to assess the extent of your disease and judge your general physical condition.
After reviewing your medical tests, including CT scans, MRI scans and Positron Emission Tomography scans (PET/CT scans), and completing a thorough examination, your radiation oncologist will fully discuss with you the potential benefits and risks of radiation therapy and answer your questions.
What should you do before the consultation?
- If you have films of current diagnositcs, lab results, reports available , please bring them with you
- If you do not have your health information available, please confirm with us upon appointment where we may retrieve the information we need for our physicians to review your case history
