Radiation Technologies

There are many ways to deliver and target radiation into the body. As with other modalities, radiation delivery techniques give the physician more choices as to how best to treat the cancer. Depending on the type of cancer and stage, one or more methods may be used to maximize tumor reduction and minimize damage to normal healthy tissues. Radiation can be used as part of a multi-disciplinary approach including chemotherapy and / or surgery as well as a standalone treatment for certain tumors.
