The Department of Radiation Medicine serves over 1,500 new patients per year from the OHSU Hospital and OHSU clinics, the Knight Cancer Institute, Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, the Portland Veteran’s Administration Hospital, Beaverton Knight Cancer Institute, Columbia Memorial Hospital, Community Cancer Center, Mid-Columbia Medical Center, Hillsboro Medical Center and Bay Area Hospital. In addition to the patients cared for from these hospitals, the Department of Radiation Medicine also supports clinical off-site partnerships with seven clinical sites throughout the state.
The Department offers three primary types of radiation therapy: external beam radiation, internal radiation (or brachytherapy), and intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT). Within external beam radiation, the Department offers multiple treatment options to treat various types of cancers. Presently, the department employs a variety of external beam radiation treatments, including 3D conformal radiation therapy (3D CRT), intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), TomoTherapy, total body irradiation (TBI), total skin electron beam therapy (TSEB), and tumor treating fields (TTF). While brachytherapy is the most frequently utilized form of internal radiation offered at OHSU, the Department also uses selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) and systemic radiation therapy. OHSU was the first center in the U.S to use the hybrid Geneva application brachytherapy and is the only center in Oregon with brachytherapy guided by MRI.
The Department is also proud to offer some of the most advanced technology for intraoperative radiation therapy, such as the Mobetron portable electron IORT device. The Department plans to build on its reputation of offering the most advanced treatment options in radiation medicine to the people of Oregon.
