NT Radiation Oncology

Based at the Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre on the grounds of the Royal Darwin Hospital, we offer a comprehensive range of Radiation Oncology treatment without the need to travel interstate.

NTRO has rapidly gained the reputation as a regional centre of excellence since our inception in January 2010, as we developed and implemented the latest treatment protocols such as Intensity Modulated RadioTherapy (IMRT), VoluMetric Arc radioTherapy (VMAT) and Image Guided RadioTherapy (IGRT) using the latest technology and equipment.

Northern Territory Radiation Oncology (NTRO)

Our comprehensive service is well supported by a very experienced team of Radiation Oncologists, Radiation Therapists, Medical Physicists and Nurses who are motivated in providing exemplary clinical and supportive care. NTRO is fully committed to culturally appropriate practices when engaging with people of diverse race, ethnicity and background.

Our staff works closely with all the cancer disciplines in surgery, chemotherapy, palliative care and allied health to deliver the most appropriate cancer treatment, pathway and care. NTRO is professionally affiliated with Royal Adelaide Hospital and conducts research and clinical trials to improve cancer outcome in the Northern Territory

The Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre is named in memory of Dr Alan Walker (1931-2007), a Northern Territory pediatrician credited with improving Aboriginal infant mortality and child health outcomes.
