Levine Cancer Institute Radiation Oncology
Radiation therapy is a treatment for cancer and other conditions that uses radiation (strong beams of energy) to target and destroy unhealthy cells. When you choose Atrium Health Levine Cancer Institute (LCI) for radiation therapy, you’re surrounded by a team with the experience needed to provide the most effective treatment for you. LCI’s radiation oncology experts specialize in using highly targeted radiation therapy options that give you the best chance of a healthy recovery.

With ongoing research and philanthropic investments in the latest therapies, LCI is always striving to bring the safest, most effective radiation treatments to patients.
- Better management of side effects. Using advanced technology, our experts customize each patient’s radiation treatment to target their cancer while minimizing the effects on healthy tissue. Throughout treatment, care teams help patients stay as healthy and comfortable as possible with supportive therapies that are clinically proven to improve outcomes.
