What is Radiotherapy
Radiation therapy is the medical use of ionising radiation to treat patients with cancer. The treatment generates radiation beams that are shaped according to the size and shape of the tumour. This helps reduce radiation dose to the healthy tissues surrounding the organ while delivering maximum dose to the target.
Radiation therapy can be used to cure or control cancer, as well as to reduce symptoms caused by cancer such as pain and bleeding.
Our range of radiation therapy techniques and choice of technique depends on various factors such as the patient’s clinical condition, type of cancer, aim of treatment, location and size of the tumour.
