Chemotherapy, and radiation are not only extreme but can be just as painful and dangerous as cancer

Jason Russell Williams (born April 8, 1974) is an American Radiologist and Interventional Oncologist specializing in image-guided procedures for cancer and immunotherapy. He is considered a pioneer in intratumoral immunotherapy and cancer ablative technologies such as cryoablation and RFA. He is involved in research with immunotherapy drug development and image-guided devices to treat cancer.

He was the winner of the 2019 Vince Lombardi “Leaders for a Cure Award.” He has won 2007 Telly and Communicator awards for his video work on RFA. He won the RSNA (Radiological Society of North America) Research fellow award in 2004.
