Radiation oncology at East Carolina University's (ECU) Brody School of Medicine combines big-city services with small-town friendliness. ECU boasts the most advanced radiotherapy technology in the state of North Carolina, and is the only academic center in the state with both a Gamma Knife and a CyberKnife for optimal radiosurgery from head to toe.

We are located at the Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center in Greenville, North Carolina, which is the most comprehensive cancer treatment, academic, and research center in our region. Cancer patients who meet the eligibility criteria may stay free of charge at the American Cancer Society's McConnell-Raab Hope Lodge during radiation treatments. The Hope Lodge is conveniently located just one mile away from the Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center.

Our ECU Radiation Oncology team is the largest, most experienced, and diverse team ever assembled in Eastern North Carolina. Our expert team has been able to bring the latest radiation technologies to our region. Our radiation oncology facility is fully accredited by the American College of Radiology, which sets us apart from all the radiation oncology practices in the region. Our services include a wide array of cutting-edge treatment options, such as CyberKnife radiosurgery, Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), Hypofractionated IGRT for early stage lung cancer, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), prostate seed implants, Photodynamic Therapy (PDT), MammoSite for breast cancer, TheraSphere for liver cancer, Zevalin for lymphoma, and Gamma Knife radiosurgery that promise to raise the quality of life of our patients by maximizing results and minimizing side-effects.

These innovative technologies require a team of dedicated physicists and other supporting staff that constantly work behind the scenes. Our team performs rigorous quality assurance checks so that you get the full benefits of our advanced technology. We are very proud of our high quality assurance standards that help us deliver the safest and most reproducible treatments possible.
