The facility installation will be on the Phoenix, Arizona campus of The Mayo Clinic. “We selected RAD Technology’s system due to the shorter timeline to opening, and because of the structure’s temporary, modular design,” said Dr. Leonard Gunderson, Chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale. “The RAD Technology facility will serve as a bridge to a planned permanent expansion space on our hospital campus.”
