Radiation Oncology: Letter from the Chief

Sharad Goyal

I would like to personally welcome you to GW Radiation Oncology. I am very proud to be a member of this exceptional department, which offers our patients access to state-of-the-art therapies delivered in a compassionate, caring environment. We also have a strong commitment to education and research, particularly to develop and implement advanced radiation technologies. GW Radiation Oncology is an integral member of the GW Cancer Center and the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences.

The outstanding faculty and staff, combined with GW’s extensive collection of advanced technology, gives patients access to nearly every treatment option available for their cancer. The broad range of radiation treatments available includes intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) and 3D conformal radiation therapy (3DCRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), and brachytherapy (interstitial, intracavitary, HDR and LDR).

GW Radiation Oncology is not only committed to delivering exceptional radiation therapy, but also to enhancing and improving upon the patient experience by providing a full range of clinical services and supportive programs. An integral component of the GW Cancer Center at the George Washington University, GW Radiation Oncology draws upon the center's full resources to deliver the best possible comprehensive care.

GW Radiation Oncology is located on GW’s Foggy Bottom Campus which sits on about 18 square blocks in the heart of Washington, D.C., just blocks from the White House, John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, World Bank, and countless other national and international organizations. GW Radiation Oncology is integrated in every way of life in the nation’s capital… enjoys a front row seat in the city – and the world.
