About UAMS Department of Radiation Oncology
The Department of Radiation Oncology is a growing academic department currently housed in a two-story building on the UAMS campus. A new Radiation Oncology Center is in planning and construction. It includes conventional external beam therapy, single-room (IBA Proteus One) intensity modulated proton therapy and brachytherapy in an HDR suite. The new center is scheduled to open in 2023. The department currently has two identical Varian TrueBeam STx accelerators with six degree of freedom couches and with Brainlab Exactrac, an Accuray TomoHDA unit, and an Elekta Nucletron HDR unit. Treatment planning systems include: Eclipse, Precision, Brainlab Elements, and RayStation. The department also has a CAMPEP-accredited medical physics residency program that is in MATCH program and admitting one resident per year.
