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

The hospital ambience, doctors and the support staffs are excellent. Especially the ambience of the hospital did not make us feel that we were in the hospital and not to forget the staffs, we were pampered.
