The Most Advacnced Radiation Technology at Harshamitra:
Linear accelerator radiation therapy technology allows our radiation oncologists to track a patient’s cancer daily to accurately monitor cancer treatment. If the tumor changes in shape and size, experts can adapt the treatment to the changes in tumor volume, which increases cure rate and reduces risks to healthy tissue.
Cancers We Treat
Almost all types of cancer can be treated with this technology. This is the most advanced technology and has no side effects and can assure complete recovery when diagnoised and treatred at the early phase.
How Radiation Therapy Works Against Cancer
At high doses, radiation therapy kills cancer cells or slows their growth by damaging their DNA. Cancer cells whose DNA is damaged beyond repair stop dividing or die. When the damaged cells die, they are broken down and removed by the body.
Radiation therapy does not kill cancer cells right away. It takes days or weeks of treatment before DNA is damaged enough for cancer cells to die. Then, cancer cells keep dying for weeks or months after radiation therapy ends.
Types of Radiation Therapy
There are two main types of radiation therapy, external beam and internal.
The type of radiation therapy that you may have depends on many factors, including:
· The type of cancer
· The size of the tumor
· The tumor’s location in the body
· How close the tumor is to normal tissues that are sensitive to radiation
· Your general health and medical history
· Whether you will have other types of cancer treatment
· Other factors, such as your age and other medical conditions
