At Nuclear Oncology Medical Care, we believe in delivering precisely what is best for the patient.

We specialize in comprehensive radiation oncology—therapies that use carefully-measured amounts of high-energy radiation to treat patients with any of a number of cancers. Nuclear Oncology Medical Care provides the newest, most precise radiation therapy available anywhere today, including Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT), Tomotherapy and high dose rate brachytherapy (HDR).

“Our commitment is to make the latest advances in cancer treatment more accessible.”


Our Story

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.

Expertise & experience where you live
