Your Radiation Oncologist, Dr. Rine or Dr. Cooke, is the head of your treatment team. You’ll meet your Radiation Oncologist at your first visit and continue seeing them on a weekly basis to talk about how your treatment is progressing and make any necessary adjustments. You’ll also meet with your Radiation Oncologist regularly after your treatment to monitor your progress and healing.
The Medical Physicist manages the quality assurance program to ensure that all equipment works properly. The Medical Physicist takes measurements, performs safety tests, helps to ensure the accuracy of treatment and verifies the radiation dose you receive.
Working in collaboration with the Radiation Oncologist and the Medical Physicist, the Dosimetrist helps to develop a treatment plan that will deliver the right amount of radiation while avoiding healthy tissue as much as possible.
