1 in 2 cancer patients could benefit from radiation therapy
Radiation therapy, also called radiotherapy, is a minimally invasive and highly effective cancer treatment. Radiation therapy could benefit 1 in every 2 patients with cancer.
Radiation therapy can be used to treat a range of cancers in various stages of progression and all parts of the body. It is suitable for people of all ages – from the young to the elderly.
Radiation therapy can be effective on its own or when delivered in conjunction with other cancer treatments such as surgery or chemotherapy (anti-cancer drugs). It is an appealing treatment option for cancer patients in Australia and New Zealand and is delivered to the highest standard by expert radiation oncology teams.
