There are many exciting careers in the growing medical field. One of these is the field of radiation therapy. Individuals who enjoy helping patients, working with technology, and working on the front lines of the medical battlefield to eradicate cancer should consider entering a career in radiation therapy.

Radiation therapy is primarily used in treatment plans for cancer patients. Radiation therapists operate machines known as linear accelerators to target cancerous cells and shrink or eliminate them. Linear accelerators use high energy x-rays to kill off the cancerous cells.
