Facilities and Resources

The program is carried out in the departments of Radiation Oncology of the three hospitals. For more detail description of the facilities and treatment resources, please see the links.

The Department at MGH has three main facilities, the Lunder building, where there are currently six linear accelerators and a soon-to-be installed second proton machine, the Cox building where the CT and HDR units are located and the Burr Proton Center, where the proton cyclotron is located. A dedicated IORT electron linear accelerator is located in the Blake building in the OR suite. Construction for expanded proton capacity in the Lunder Building is ongoing.

The combined Department at BWH consists of the Radiation Oncology department of BWH as well as the other two hospitals in the Longwood area: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Children’s Hospital. The department maintains seven linear accelerators, a dedicated TBI system, a CT image-guided brachytherapy suite, an advanced multimodality image-guided operating (AMIGO) suite in collaboration with Interventional Radiology, and a dedicated stereotactic linear accelerator.

The Department at BIDMC currently has three conventional linear accelerators in operation and a CyberKnife® unit. The department also has active brachytherapy and TBI programs.
