What is radiation therapy?
Radiation Therapy is the use of ionized radiation in malignant and some selected benign diseases. Approximately 60-80% of cancer patients undergo radiation therapy minimum once during the follow-up process.
Radiation therapy can be used for therapeutic, adjuvant (to increase the efficiency of other therapies), palliative (for local disease control or reduction of symptoms in cases where treatment is not possible) or prophylactic purposes.
