Expertise & experience where you live


Our technology, impressive though it is, must be accompanied by expertise, experience–and a precise commitment in mind. That’s what our team of board-certified physicians brings. They are leaders in assimilating advanced technology into patient care. Several serve as faculty members of Rush University.


And our commitment is consistent: we’ve pioneered the use of precise technology to treat cancer. Nuclear Oncology Medical Care was founded in 1971 by Frank Hendrickson, Chairman of Radiation Oncology at

Rush University Medical Center. In 1976, he worked with Fermilab scientists to build the Neutron Therapy Facility, one of only 3 neutron centers in the country.

In 1999, Nuclear Oncology Medical Care was part of another major advance: the first private practice to offer IMRT, a dynamic computer-controlled process for delivering individualized radiation shaped to the precise contours of the targeted area. Today we offer the current state-of-the-art with Tomotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery.


For the benefits of this

dual philosophy, there’s only one choice: Nuclear Oncology Medical Care.
