What is Radiotherapy?

Radiation is a type of energy carried by waves or particles. It may be released by special devices or by radioactive substances. This energy is used for the purpose of imaging environment in medical fields. For example, we can give image lung.Technologically advanced devices are needed to guide the radiation to diseased organs. The use of high dose radiation energy with the intended purpose of healing is called "radiotherapy" or "beam therapy".


How it affects the body?

Because cancer cells divide and multiply faster than normal cells, radiotherapy is more effective on cancer cells than normal cells. In addition, normal cells are much easier to recover and restore than cancer cells.


What are the benefits of radiotherapy and its aim ?

Most cancer types in almost every region of the body radiotherapy is used.
Radiotherapy is also applied in the majority of cancer patients. Radiotherapy in some types of cancer may be the only solution. Radiotherapy may be combined with chemotherapy to achieve more results.

Radiotherapy is sometimes given for the purpose of minimizing tumor before surgery. In some tumors, it is applied with the aim of cleaning the cancer cells which may have been left after surgery. There are also methods in which radiotherapy is applied during surgery. Without surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy can also be applied directly to cancer types.

In some cases where it is not possible to fully cure the disease, radiotherapy may be applied with the aim of reducing the pains of the patient. Such treatment is called "palliative treatment." Radiation therapy is more effective on cancer cells than normal cells, as the cancer cells divide and multiply faster than normal cells. In addition, normal cells are much easier to recover and restore than cancer cells.
