RADIATION THERAPY

Working as a Radiation Therapist

Radiologists and radiation oncologists often prescribe radiation therapy for patients who have cancer or other serious diseases. As a radiation therapist, you'll be part of the team that helps plans and administers these treatments, and monitors patients' conditions. You'll use special equipment that produces ionizing radiation to administer therapeutic doses of radiation.

Part of your job may also be to provide support to nervous patients. Dealing with a serious disease is usually a challenging and frightening experience. Having a skilled and caring radiation therapist can often make a great deal of difference.
