Temple's Commitment to Safety & Quality
Radiation is invisible but its effects, both good and bad, are not. That's why at Temple we constantly monitor daily treatment records and keep a detailed registry of all patient outcomes. We also regularly test our equipment, refine our safety checklists and monitor our daily procedures.
This attention to detail goes on behind the scenes, but is it essential. As radiation technology grows more powerful and complex, the standards and safeguards must keep pace. At Temple, you can be sure they do.

Qualified to train new doctors in advanced oncology
Licensed by state and professional radiation therapy groups
