What is radiation therapy
Leading
Cause to cure

Radiation therapy, also known as radiotherapy, is a form of medical treatment that uses high doses of radiation to kill or damage cancer cells.

 

Most commonly used forms of radiation are X-rays as well as particals like protons, that are precisely aimed at the cancerous tumor. The goal is to shrink the tumor, stop its growth and eliminate it altogether. Radiation therapy is carefully planned to maximize its effectiveness while minimizing damage to nearby healthy tissues.

How Radiation Therapy works against cancer
image
Radiant Recovery

It can be given in all stages of cancer starting from early to advanced and metastatic cancers. It has been proven to be successful in curing and controlling cancer when used appropriatly depending of type and stage of cancer. Sometimes it is also used as palliation to relieve pain or as a hemostatic to stop bleeding in advanced stage of cancer.

The Transformative Power of Radiation Therapy

Radiation Therapy works by directly damaging the DNA inside these cells and also by forming free radical inside the body which also damages tumor cells, preventing them from growing and dividing further. Radiation therapy is a localized treatment, meaning it targets a specific area of the body where cancer is present.

  • damaging the DNA inside cancer cells
  • preventing cancer cells from proliferating.
  • palliative care to relieve symptoms
  • induces changes in the behavior of cancer cells
Empowering Healing

The process is painless, and patients do not feel the radiation during the treatment. Radiation therapy can be used alone or in combination with surgery, chemotherapy, or immunotherapy, depending on the type and stage of cancer. The specific approach is determined by the oncologist based on the individual patient's condition.

Brachy therapy

Effective Solution

Brachytherapy is a precise form of radiation therapy where radioactive sources are placed directly near or within the cancerous area. This minimises damage to surrounding healthy tissues. The method, using seeds or catheters, is effective for cancers like prostate, breast, and gynaecologic cancers. Its advantage lies in delivering high radiation doses to tumours while sparing normal tissues. Brachytherapy is versatile, used alone or combined with other treatments, making it a valuable tool in personalised cancer care, ensuring effective outcomes.

The personalized nature of brachytherapy and its ability to enhance treatment outcomes make it a valuable tool in the comprehensive approach to cancer management.
