Vision and mission
To increase awareness of radiation therapy as an effective, safe and sophisticated treatment for cancer. To reach people with cancer, their families and loved ones to improve their knowledge and access to this (sometimes overlooked) treatment.
How Radiation Oncology – Targeting Cancer can help
Over 100,000 Australians are diagnosed with cancer each year. It is estimated that about half of them will benefit from radiation therapy as part of their overall cancer treatment.
Radiation therapy can be applied safely to a wide range of cancers, and may be used alone or in conjunction with surgery, chemotherapy and other treatments. It is usually completely non-invasive, and accessed through out-patient clinics. Radiation therapy is a highly cost effective cancer treatment.
