At Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), we're not only changing the way we treat cancer, but also the way the world thinks about it. By working together and pushing forward with innovation and discovery, we're driving excellence and improving outcomes.
For the 28th year, MSK has been named a top hospital for cancer by U.S. News & World Report. We are proud to be on Becker's Healthcare list as one of the 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare in 2018, as well as one of Glassdoor's Employees' Choice Best Place to Work for 2018. We're treating cancer, one patient at a time. Join us and make a difference every day.
The Department of Medical Physics is actively developing new methods to address a wide range of imaging, radiotherapy, and engineering challenges in the treatment and diagnosis of cancer. Collaboration among medical physicists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, and other clinical investigators helps to ensure that the latest developments benefit patients as quickly as possible. The department has a long history of innovation in radiation oncology (anticancer treatment with precision-controlled radiation beams), nuclear medicine (imaging with radioactive materials), and radiology. We were the lead institution in implementing and demonstrating the clinical value of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), now a standard treatment approach around the world. Areas that our physicists continue to develop in collaboration with our physicians include image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), advanced brachytherapy (implanted isotope) methods, quantitative imaging with positron emission tomography (PET) nuclear imaging, and a range of new applications for MRI.
