Radiation therapy is used for:
- Treatment of tumors that can't be removed completely because of their location.
- Treatment of tumors that were incompletely removed surgically.
- Partial shrinkage of a large tumor that is causing specific problems for an animal.
- Relief of bone pain due to a primary tumor or metastatic disease.
We have treated animals as large as horses and as small as rats at Auburn University's linear accelerator facility.
