Radiation oncology is a medical speciality that involves the controlled use of radiation to treat cancer either for cure, or to reduce pain and other symptoms caused by cancer. Radiation therapy can be applied safely to a wide range of cancers, and may be used alone or in conjunction with surgery, chemotherapy and other treatments. It is usually completely non-invasive, and accessed through out-patient clinics. Radiation therapy is a highly cost effective cancer treatment. A radiation oncologist may use radiation to cure cancer or to relieve a cancer patient's pain or alleviate other symptoms due to the cancer. Radiation therapy works because the radiation destroys the cancer cells' ability to reproduce, and the body naturally gets rid of these cells. Radiation affects cancer cells by damaging their DNA, so that the cancer cells can no longer divide and grow. Radiation is most effective at killing cells that are actively dividing. Radiation may also be given with radioactive sources that are put inside the patient brachytherapy. The radioactive sources are sealed in needles, seeds, wires, or catheters, and implanted directly into or near a tumor on a temporary or permanent basis. Patients can be treated with radiation therapy and chemotherapy before surgery. Combined treatment may allow a patient to have less radical surgery than would otherwise be required. The technology used in radiation oncology is constantly improving. Recent advances have benefited many patients with cancer, resulting in higher cure rates, fewer side effects, shorter treatments and improved quality of life.
- Linear Accelerators:
A linear accelerator is the device most commonly used for external beam radiation treatments for patients with cancer. The linear accelerator is used to treat all parts/ organs of the body and customizes high energy x-rays or electrons to conform to a tumor
