What is Radiotherapy ?
Radiotherapy is one of the theraputic treatments for cancer.

Principle
Cancer cells are exposed to high energy x-rays or electrons which destroy or prevent cell multiplication. External radiotherapy is administered outside the body using high energy x-rays whilst internal radiotherapy is produced from a radioactive material being introduced to the body (as in the use of curietherapy). Almost 60% of cancer patients undergo radiotherapy and it is often associated with other treatments such as surgery or chemotherapy.
