Abstract

Radiation therapy for cancer patients in Jordan began with a small individual effort and has now grown to be one of the most prominent in the Middle East. Currently, there are four different centers that provide radiation treatment not only for the people of Jordan but also to other Arab neighboring countries. Naturally, Jordan being a developing country still faces a problem in the number of available radiotherapy machines and their supporting staff (physicists, technologists, etc.). In this paper we shed a light on the history and current status of radiation oncology in Jordan and discuss the challenges that faces us.
