An important part of cancer treatment using high energy x-rays.

Radiotherapy is the use of high energy X-rays used to treat cancer (or sometimes benign disease). It can be delivered as a stand-alone treatment option or before or after surgery, before, during or after chemotherapy and alongside hormone treatment.

Radiotherapy treatment can be given in two different ways - from outside the body (external beam radiotherapy) and from inside the body (internal beam radiotherapy). The information on this page relates to external beam radiotherapy.
