UCLA Health is the #1 rated Hospital in the Western United States and #3 in the nation per U.S. News and World Report. The Department of Radiation Oncology offers innovative radiation treatment options across all service lines. Our unique clinical department is recognized nationally for cutting-edge research and technology in the treatment of all types of malignancies. Our innovative approach in the treatment of various malignancies is a complement to our medical physics and radiation biology divisions.

The Department of Radiation Oncology currently has four sites: a main campus equipped with three conventional linear accelerators (Varian TrueBeam, Novalis Tx, and TomoTherapy HD) and the ViewRay MRI-guided IMRT linear-accelerator-based MRIdian system, a second campus in Santa Monica equipped with Varian TrueBeam and Varian STx accelerators, a third campus in Santa Clarita with a Varian Ethos, and a fourth campus in downtown Los Angeles with a Varian EX. The main campus is currently installing a Siemens Drive Dual-Source CT simulator and Siemens Sola 1.5T MR simulator. We also have an active Brachytherapy program that employs Varian and Elekta HDR systems and the Mobius AIRO portable CT scanner. EBRT treatment Planning systems include Eclipse, iPlan, TomoTherapy, Brainlab Elements, and ViewRay supported with MiM and ARIA record and verify.
