What is Radiotherapy?

Radiotherapy (Radiation Therapy) uses High-energy beams of radiation rays focused on cancerous tissue to kill them or stops them from multiplying.

How is radiotherapy given?

There are two main ways of giving radiotherapy:

  • External radiotherapy where the radiation comes from a machine from outside the body.
  • Internal radiotherapy where the radiation comes from implants or liquids placed inside the body.

What are the latest techniques in radiotherapy?

New ways of giving radiotherapy are being developed. These may be used for the treatment of some but not all cancers. These are helpful in minimizing side effects of radiotherapy

The new methods of radiotherapy include:

  • Intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), which is particularly useful for cancers in the head and neck.
  • Image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT), which allows more accurate targeting of radiotherapy to the cancer.
  • Stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT), which can be used to target very small cancers.
