At South County Radiation Therapy, we understand that when southern Rhode Islanders are undergoing radiation therapy they want top-quality medical experts using the latest technology in a setting as close to home as possible.
South County Radiation Therapy is a partnership between South County Hospital and 21st Century Oncology, a respected national leader in radiation oncology. We offer you a full spectrum of radiation therapy, including some of the most advanced radiation therapy treatments, such as:
- Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
- 3-D conformal beam therapy
- HDR brachytherapy - a powerful form of internally delivered radiation therapy that destroys many types of cancers including skin, cervical, prostate and breast.
