Our Target Is The Tumor, Not Your Healthy Tissue
Radiation therapy is an integral part of cancer care. It may be a primary therapy by itself or radiation therapy can be combined with chemotherapy, hormone therapy, surgery or sometimes, all three.
The Division of Radiation Oncology at the Beverly Hills Cancer Center is comprised of highly trained experts in the fields of radiation oncology and stereotactic radiosurgery. We offer among the very best, contemporary, state-of-the-art radiation oncology treatments in the private and comfortable setting of our Los Angeles treatment center. By investing in the most up-to-date technology available, we have made certain that we are able to provide the highest quality of care to all of our patients.
On-site Diagnostic Imaging Helps Us Locate The Target
Our on-site diagnostic imaging center, which offers PET/CT, CT, MRI and bone scans, allows the physicians to more precisely target your tumor. With more sophisticated treatment planning, radiation treatments can often be delivered with a maximum dose to the tumor, while minimizing potential side effects.Learn more about our Diagnostic Imaging Center »
Your Safety Is Paramount
At the Beverly Hills Cancer Center, patient safety is paramount. Our radiation facility was built to specification to ensure that our radiation treatments can be delivered to patients with no risk in our unique above-ground facility. During cancer treatments, we take all necessary steps to ensure that patients will not be exposed to unnecessary radiation and to reduce radiation exposure during medical imaging.
The outcomes of radiation therapy treatments are dependent on the accuracy and precision of the radiation therapy treatment. Several technological advancements have improved patient outcomes and reduced treatment errors, including the introduction of record and verify software systems. At the Beverly Hills Cancer Center we use the most advanced Healthcare Informatics System, MOSAIQ, to assure the quality, safety, and accuracy of each highly sophisticated treatment.
Types Of Radiation Therapy

By combining advanced imaging technology with different radiation beam intensities, our radiation oncologists can pinpoint and irradiate tumors while preserving surrounding healthy tissue.Learn more »
Stereotactic Body Radiosurgery Or Radiotherapy (SBRT)
This type of radiation therapy delivers high doses of radiation to tumors in a single or limited number of treatments.Learn more »
High Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy

Respiratory Gating And 4D CT
With advanced CT scanning software, Beverly Hills Cancer Center radiation oncologists can determine not just where a tumor is at one time, but also where it will be when it is in motion, as for example, a lung cancer that moves with each breath.Learn more »
