HEALTH ALERT!  For the safety of our patients and staff, effective March 30, 2020, new patients and patients with disabilities will be permitted one visitor over the age of 15. No other visitors will be permitted into the clinic.  Family members and caretakers may participate in the appointments remotely by phone or video conference if desired. Compass is working with other health care providers in the area to help contain the spread of the novel Coronavirus. We are taking active steps to minimize your exposure to the virus. These steps include screening everyone who enters the clinic for signs of illness, banning most visitors in the clinic, minimizing our own staffing and allowing some employees to work from home, and frequent sanitation of the clinic. We are using personal protective equipment such as masks, gowns, gloves, and face-shields according to national guidelines. We are working to identify those patients whose visits or treatments can be safely delayed, and we will notify you of this if you have an upcoming visit.  We ask that you stay home if you have fever and/or cough.

Radiation Oncology

Compass Oncology offers high quality radiation therapy services with an emphasis upon convenient, integrated treatment. The Compass Oncology radiation team includes board-certified radiation oncologists with years of experience in caring for cancer patients assisted by qualified medical physics, dosimetry, radiation therapists and nursing support staff.

Radiation oncologists use cutting-edge technology to deliver precise doses of radiation to treat cancer. The therapy works on a molecular level by damaging the ability of cancer cells to reproduce. Treatments are often given over a few weeks, though in some cases may be delivered over a few days. Compass radiation oncologists have advanced expertise in today’s complex therapies, including the following:

  • Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
  • Volumetric-Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT)
  • Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)
  • Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) 
  • Stereotactic Radiation Therapy (SRT)
  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS)
  • High Dose Rate Brachytherapy
  • External Beam Radiation Therapy
  • Radioisotope (e.g. Radium-223) Administration

Compass Oncology provides radiation therapy services at two convenient locations: Rose Quarter and Vancouver.
