Principles of radiation therapy. Radiation is a physical agent, which is used to destroy cancer cells. The radiation used is called ionizing radiation because it forms ions (electrically charged particles) and deposits energy in the cells of the tissues it passes through. This deposited energy can kill cancer cells or cause genetic changes Cited by: BIOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES OF RADIATION THERAPY adiation therapy is the treatment of cancer using ionizing radiation. The goal of radiation is to destroy or inactivate cancer cells while preserving the integrity of normal tissues within PRINCIPLES OF RADIOTHERAPY AND RADIOBIOLOGY the treatment by:

CHAPTER 2 Principles of radiation therapy Michael J. Gazda, MS, and Lawrence R. Coia, MD This chapter provides a brief overview of the principles of radiation therapy.
The topics to be discussed include the physical aspects of how radiation works (ionization, radiation interactions) and how it is delivered (treatment machines, File Size: 73KB. Topics include radiation therapy physics, radiobiology, treatment and simulation equipment, principles of patient care, clinical components of cancer care, and cancers of the brain, head and neck region, and respiratory, digestive, urinary, and male and female reproductive systems.5/5(6).
Basic Principles of Radiation Therapy Cellular Effects of Radiation Radiation therapy uses ionizing radiation, which means that the radiation’s energy is sufficient to remove an electron from the outer shell of an atom (more than electron volts).
1 In clinical therapy, photon radiation is most commonly generated by linear accelerators or. The provision of a safe and effective radiation oncology service is complex. It requires a substantial capital investment in radiotherapy equipment and specially-designed buildings, an ongoing investment in maintenance and replacement of the equipment, expert teams of doctors, therapists and physicists, and good access to engineering support.
Radiation Therapy Principles Radiation and radioactivity were discovered more than years ago. Since then advances in technology and a better understanding of its effects on the body have made radiation therapy an important part of cancer treatment.
