University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics is renowned around the world for its therapeutic use of radiation therapy for a wide range of diseases and conditions.
- We are home to the world's first fully digitally integrated image-guided
radiation therapy center.
- We were the first hospital in Iowa to offer a special procedure involving the insertion of radioactive seeds after a breast lumpectomy using a catheter, which causes less radiation damage to surrounding tissue.
- Our radiation therapy staff members are involved in a range of research activities including anti-tumor radiolabeled proteins for diagnosis and treatment of specific cancers and radio-immunotherapy for treatment of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
