Radiation Therapy

Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy is the treatment of disease using penetrating beams of high-energy waves of particles called radiation. The radiation is given at high doses to treat cancer and other illnesses. Radiation in high doses kills cells or keeps them from growing and dividing. Radiation may sometimes be used before surgery to shrink a tumor to perform less invasive surgery.
