Dr. Joseph Imperato answered
Specializes in Radiation Oncology
Chemo is treatment: Leukemia is primarily treated with chemotherapy. Radiation has been used in the past for so called "sanctuary" sites like the brain and scrotum. However, today even that is less common. However, in situations where we have to treat leukemic masses, called chloromas, radiation is very effective at lower doses.
