Yale Medicine Pediatric Radiotherapy is a national and regional resource for high-quality medical care, research and education regarding the treatment of childhood cancer.

Our pediatric radiation oncology program utilizes innovative technologies along with established ones to treat childhood cancers. Modalities include intensity modulated radiotherapy, 3-D treatment planning, CT-simulation, gamma-knife radiosurgery, PET imaging, comfortable patient immobilization, and brachytherapy.

While improvements in systemic therapy (such as chemotherapy) have been largely responsible for improved cure rates for cancer, “local” therapies (such as surgery and radiotherapy) remain important components of comprehensive cancer treatment.
