    The first thing the radiologist did was mark the radiation site. That just entailed using what looked like a sharpie marker to put dots on my skin. After a couple of times doing that, I started the treatments. I would uncover the part of my body to be radiated and lie on a table. The radiologist started a machine that moved from one side to the other. It took about 5 to 10 minutes to do it.
