Radiation therapy uses high-dose x-rays to kill cancer cells.
UPMC Hillman Cancer Center radiation oncologists are among the nation's most experienced in using the latest radiation technologies to treat colorectal and GI cancer.
We have access to the widest variety of advanced radiation delivery systems available. These systems allow us to target the radiation directly to the cancer site, helping spare healthy tissue around the tumor.
