NAME

Radiotherapy

DESCRIPTION

Radiotherapy, or radiation therapy, is the clinical use of high energy rays (ionizing radiation) to induce DNA damage in all exposed cells to ultimately kill cancer cells or prevent cancer growth. Radiotherapy may be used to eradicate some cancers, to reduce recurrence or as palliative treatment.
