MOI - Radiotherapy
Radiotherapy is a treatment involving exposure to X-rays which destroy cancerous cells. It is a therapeutic technique in which precisely defined parts of the body are exposed to tumour-destroying radiation. This effect is generated by a linear accelerator which directs diffuse radiation at the tumour during daily sessions each lasting a few minutes. The radiation is guided very precisely by sophisticated systems inside the equipment.
The radio-oncologist selects - in close collaboration with the dosimetrists and physicists - the irradiation plans which will be delivered to the patients. Every stage of the treatment is subject to a rigorous quality control.
