Radiation Oncology Services

The UC Irvine Health radiation oncology team understands what cancer patients and their family members are experiencing. We take pride in providing the most advanced radiation therapies in a comfortable and compassionate setting.

Our nationally recognized specialists are skilled in treating all types of cancers, from common to rare, and they personalize your care to provide the best possible outcome.

We are located in the UC Irvine Health Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, the only institution in Orange County carrying the National Cancer Institute's designation for high quality, comprehensive care.

Our wide-ranging services include noninvasive treatments with the most innovative technologies, including the TrueBeam STx™, a state-of-the-art linear accelerator that delivers highly focused radiation beams much faster and more precisely than conventional radiotherapy.

We use the versatile TrueBeam system to treat cancers throughout the body, including brain, breast, head and neck, lung, abdominal, gynecologic, prostate and other tumors.

Advances in technology and a better understanding of radiation’s effects on the body have made radiation oncology a key component in cancer treatment.

About 50 percent of patients diagnosed with cancer receive curative, supplemental or palliative radiation treatment externally and/or internally. 

At UC Irvine Health, our radiation oncology specialists harness this knowledge when treating patients with a confirmed or suspected malignancy. We also treat certain benign conditions that respond to radiation therapy.

Radiation methods

We are the first in Orange County to use the groundbreaking TrueBeam™ STx linear accelerator, which is faster and more accurate than earlier radiation therapy delivery systems.

Our external radiation treatment methods include:

  • Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
  • Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT)
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS).

We also offer internal radiation treatment, known as brachytherapy, using both high and low dose-rate radioactive sources.
