Radiation Therapists & Dosimetrists
Radiation therapists are licensed professionals who have been specially trained in a certified school of radiation therapy technology. The therapists administer daily radiation treatments, assist in treatment simulation, and perform daily safety checks on all treatment equipment. This person also handles any requests a patient may have related to treatment appointments. They may be supported by a radiation therapy technology student.
The dosimetrist is a board-certified professional trained in radiation treatment delivery techniques and in the computer systems used to plan treatments and calculate patient dose. The dosimetrist works with the radiation oncologist to design a treatment plan that will deliver the prescribed dose to the tissue under treatment while minimizing exposure to normal, healthy tissue.
