Radiation therapy is a safe and effective way to treat cancer and has been used regularly for more than 100 years. While there are continual improvements to treatment delivery systems and the therapies themselves, the term "radiation" is not always associated with health and safety. For this reason everyone at Ben Schaffer Cancer Institute is committed to the absolute safety of each patient that undergoes cancer radiation treatment at our center.
Our Commitment to Safety
Our commitment to safety means that we continually check the physics involved in any prescribed treatment, evaluate our machines daily, and immerse ourselves in safety and quality measures for both existing and new treatment technologies.
We hold ourselves to a level of safety that adheres to or goes beyond industry standards to give our patients the best possible treatment and peace of mind.
Ben Schaffer Cancer Institute is proud to have some of the nation's leading medical physicists working for our center. Our medical physics staff ensures that all of our advanced technologies work properly, reliably and safely. In addition to maintaining the safety of our equipment, our expert medical physicists also work closely with our team of radiation therapy experts to make sure that every treatment is custom tailored and safe to the needs of every patient.
