Albert C. Koong, M.D., Ph.D.
MD Anderson's Radiation Oncology department cares for patients in the Radiation Treatment Center, the most comprehensive facility of its kind in the world. Specially trained board-certified radiation oncologists are skilled in a wide range of standard and emerging treatments including proton therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, prostate brachytherapy, stereotactic body radiation treatment (SBRT), cardiac displacement, accelerated partial breast irradiation and intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT).
By using the most current treatment planning technology available to "map" tumors, our radiation oncologists can design treatments with pinpoint accuracy, ensuring that tumors get the most effective dose while healthy tissues and organs are spared.
