External radiation therapy

Radiation therapy is used to treat cancer and other disease states. The purpose may be to cure, as well as to alleviate pain in for example incurable tumor disease. Half of all cancer patients receive some form of radiation therapy, often combined with surgery, chemotherapy or hormone therapy.

Radiation therapy uses the cell damaging property of radiation. The radiation doses must be kept as low as reasonably achievable through choosing the right approach for each patient so that the side effects are minimized.
