MBBS, MD (Radiotherapy), DNB (Radiotherapy)
- Radiotherapy is the treatment of malignant (and some non-malignant) diseases using ionising radiation (gamma rays, X rays, etc).
- Radiotherapy is given in 2 ways: Teletherapy & Brachytherapy
- Teletherapy is administered by telecobalt unit or linear acclelerator. Here the source of radiation is placed away from the patient. Linear accelerators give superior dose distribution to cobalt units. Also, modern methods of radiotherapy, viz 3D CRT and IMRT are deliverable by these machines only.
- In brachytherapy, the source of radiation is placed within or close to the patient’s body. Brachytherapy uses radioactive isotopes such as Cesium 137 ,Cobalt 60 or Iridium 192 . HDR (High Dose Rate) brachytherapy allows precise computerised planning of the treatment and fast treatment delivery. Read More
