How long does each treatment take?

Radiation therapists, who are under the direction of your radiation oncologist, will be taking all the time necessary to ensure that you are accurately positioned for your treatment.  The actual time when the radiation beam is “on” and therapy is delivers is only about a minute or two for each treatment field.  Usually, patients are in and out of the department in less than 40 minutes.  Our staff works to arrange the schedules to ensure that appointments are kept on time, but on some days, there may be delays because of unforeseen circumstances or emergencies.
