Radiotherapy
 

  • Is using ionizing radiation, as a part of cancer treatment, to kill malignant cells.
  • Is normally delivered by a linear accelerator.
  • Can be delivered anywhere in the body where radiation treatment is indicated.

Radiotherapy has 2 goals:
 

  • To control/eradicate the growth of the tumor.
  • To do so while minimizing exposure to the surrounding normal, healthy tissue.
  • Advances in radiotherapy have been made recently thanks to improvements in imaging modalities, powerful computers & software and delivery systems.
