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
