Division of Dosimetry

Overview

Information about the dosimetry team in the Department of Radiation Oncology

Crucial members of the Department of Radiation Oncology team, our dosimetrists collaborate with physicians, medical physicists and fellow researchers to calculate and ensure the safest, most accurate delivery of radiation doses. Our goal is to develop effective treatment plans while considering the safety of the patient and protecting healthy tissue from radiation exposure.  

Master's Program

Dosimetry Master's Degree Program

In 2013, VCU’s Massey Cancer Center became a clinical site for University of Wisconsin La Crosse’s medical dosimetry master’s degree program. Students participating in the 12-month clinical internship take online courses synchronously.  Learn more about the Dosimetry Master's Program

Technologies

Information about the technologies used by the dosimetry team

In order to provide safe, effective care for patients in the clinic, our dosimetrists use precise calculations and algorithms to determine the optimal dosage of radiation. Working under the supervision of medical physicists, we develop treatment plans for patients using the following technologies:  

  • Image-guided brachytherapy    
  • Image-guided adaptive radiotherapy
  • Four-dimensional radiotherapy  
  • Stereotactic radiotherapy   
  • Volumetric modulated arc therapy   
  • Intensity modulated radiation therapy  
  • AccuBoost® for breast radiotherapy
