Radiation Therapy Is A Type Of Treatment That Involves Exposing

Radiation therapy, often known as radiotherapy and abbreviated as RT, RTx, or XRT, is a type of cancer treatment that uses ionising radiation to regulate or destroy malignant cells. It is typically given via a linear accelerator. Radiation therapy may be curative for a variety of cancers that are limited to one part of the body. It may also be used as adjuvant therapy following surgery to remove a primary malignant tumour to prevent tumour recurrence (for example, early stages of breast cancer). Radiation therapy has been utilised before, during, and after chemotherapy in patients with tumours that are sensitive to it. Radiation oncology is a subspecialty of oncology that deals with radiotherapy. A radiation oncologist is a doctor who specialises in this field.
