The Cynthia A. Rydholm Cancer Treatment Center at CMMC Offers State-of-the-Art Radiation Therapy Services

Many cancer patients will require radiation therapy as part of their cancer treatment program. This treatment is overseen by a radiation oncologist, a physician who specializes in using radiation to treat cancer.

Central Maine Medical Center offers this service at The Cynthia A. Rydholm Cancer Treatment Center, which has state-of-the-art radiation therapy services.

Our skilled radiation oncologists provide a variety of treatment options for cancer patients, including: external beam radiation therapy; prostate bracytherapy (radioactive seed implants); and intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for precise treatments of several types of cancer. The Center also has a superficial therapy unit which is used to treat patients who have skin cancers.

Our radiation oncologists may also consult with specialists at Massachusetts General Hospital, if necessary. Our affiliation with MGH – a world leader in cancer research and treatments - ensures that our patients receive the highest quality of cancer care.
