Technology and Treatment Modalities

Head and Neck Mobetron Practice_Jan2017

The high energy rays used for radiation therapy can come from a variety of sources.

The goal of radiation therapy is to get enough radiation into the body to kill the cancer cells while preventing damage to healthy tissue. This is done by using one of several machines, that have the ability to be aimed precisely at the same target or targets, each and every time treatment is given.
