Radiation Oncology Team

Members of your child's treatment team will have different roles. One of those specialists will be a radiation oncologist. Other team members will be nurses and radiation therapists. St. Jude uses this multidisciplinary approach to give children with cancer the best chance of survival and the best possible quality of life.
