Radiation Therapy Quality and Safety At Smilow Radiation Oncology, quality, safety and your well-being are paramount. Our Quality Assurance Committee has established a system of safeguards to ensure our treatment services meet or exceed medical industry and government standards. Our comprehensive safety program emphasizes the use of specialized, state-of-the-art technology and equipment and quality-assurance practices, as well as continuous staff training and competency evaluation.

Our Quality Assurance Committee actively reviews and studies our clinical processes as well as the result of many safety checks done daily, monthly and annually to ensure that our patients receive the safest and most effective treatment possible.
