Maury Regional Cancer Center has been awarded another three-year term of accreditation in radiation oncology as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
Radiation oncology, also known as radiation therapy, is the careful use of high-energy radiation to treat cancer. A radiation oncologist may use radiation to destroy cancer cells or to relieve a cancer patient’s pain.
The comprehensive Maury Regional Cancer Center consists of a multidisciplinary team of physicians and clinical staff who are committed to providing state-of-the-art care for cancer patients.
In addition to this accreditation from the ACR, the Cancer Center is accredited by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.
The ACR is the nation’s oldest and most widely accepted radiation oncology accrediting body with more than 700 accredited sites and 30 years of accreditation experience. The ACR seal of accreditation represents the highest level of quality and patient safety.
