Radiation Oncology Center of Seoul National University Cancer Hospital
The mission of the center is to treat cancer and improve the quality of life of patients through providing the optimal radiation therapy. Our professional medical staff with abundant clinical experience and skilled medical teams provide personalized treatment based on the patient's condition. In addition, we are leading the development of cancer treatment and radiation therapy through active research.
Best medical staff and multidisciplinary treatment
Our more than 70 employees, including professors, fellows, residents, nurses, radiologists, and researchers, treat more than 2,500 patients every year under the slogan of 'optimal treatment, and best medical care.' The center includes specialist medical staff in each disease, enabling us to provide the best treatment for each type of cancer. The Radiation Oncology Center has formed a multidisciplinary cooperative medical team with medical staff specializing in imaging, pathological diagnosis, surgery, and chemotherapy to ensure each patient receives the appropriate treatment.
The Radiation Oncology Center is actively engaged in research in clinical medicine, medical physics, and radiation biology. Through this, our excellent research results are continuously being published in renowned domestic and international conferences and academic journals. The center is promoting ongoing research to improve patients' quality of life and treatment.
State-of-art radiotherapy equipment
The Radiation Oncology Center provides optimal radiation treatment with excellent medical staff and cutting-edge radiation treatment equipment. The center is supported by overall radiation treatment technologies that include intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), stereotactic radiation therapy (SABR, SBRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), and brachytherapy according to the individual patient's condition. By doing this, we are contributing to improving our patients’ quality of life. In addition, we have a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided radiation therapy device, ViewRay, to provide precise radiation treatment to patients, as well as TrueBeam, advanced equipment for stereotactic radiation therapy and radiation surgery. Moreover, we will provide carbon ion therapy to patients from 2025 with the state-of-art technique such as scanning beam irradiation with a superconducting rotating gantry.
