Initial Consultation

Initial Consultation

Before you can begin treatment, a clinical consultation and evaluation are scheduled with your radiation oncologist. This specialist participates in your cancer care in coordination with other physicians and medical professionals. At the time of consultation, the radiation oncologist will review your records, X-rays, scans, and other test results and perform a physical examination. He or she may feel that additional tests are needed and will discuss that with you. The radiation oncology nurse will work closely with you and the physicians during the initial consultation.

If the radiation oncologist feels that you will benefit from radiation therapy, a treatment plan will be presented to you during the consultation, based on the results of the evaluation.
