The Department of Radiation Oncology is devoted to being the regional leader in innovative treatment methodologies supported by research and multidisciplinary partnerships.

What Sets Us Apart

More than half of all cancer patients will have some type of radiation therapy as part of their cancer care. Roswell Park's Radiation Medicine program has achieved a Gold Standard of Accreditation by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

What does ACR accreditation mean?

  • Our facility has voluntarily gone through a vigorous review process to ensure that we meet nationally-accepted standards of care.
  • Our personnel are well qualified, through education and certification, to perform medical imaging, interpret your images, and administer your radiation therapy treatments.
  • Our equipment is appropriate for the test or treatment you will receive, and our facility meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines.
