Risk And Complication

Radiation therapy is a common treatment for cancer that uses radiations like x-rays, gamma rays, protons or electron beams to destroy or control malignant cancer cells. The other names for it are radiotherapy, irradiation, x-ray therapy, or radiation oncology. Cancer cells multiply and divide faster than normal cells. Radiation therapy is a localized treatment, which works by breaking the internal part of the DNA cells of a particular area. In this way, the radiation stifles the growth and the division of the malignant cells and often destroys them completely.

Only in a few rare cases the radiation is given in an entire vein or orally. In such treatment the radiation passes through the whole body to reach its target region. Sometimes the nearby normal cells are also affected by the radiation, so the treatment should be carried out under meticulous supervision. Radiation therapy can be broadly divided into two categories:

  1. External Radiotherapy
  2. Internal Radiotherapy


External Radiotherapy: A patient undergoing external radiotherapy is given high energy radiation at the cancerous site by a machine, which is directed exactly to the treatable area. External radiotherapy is a course of treatment given over a span of few weeks. The treatment is painless and takes around 15 minutes. The external radiotherapy is of several types:

  • Three-Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3D-CRT) – It is used to show the shape, size, and location of the tumour through MR, CT, or PET scans. The radiation beams are modified according to the size of the tumour and then given from several directions.
  • Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) – It is an advanced form of 3D-CRT, in which the beam’s intensity can be adjusted and the radiation is more properly shaped to fit the tumours size.
  • IGRT – It uses image guided radiation therapy, because there is a chance of the tumour moving between treatments.
  • Tomotherapy – In this, IMRT is combined with Computed Tomography scanning technology to create 3D images of the body’s interior.
  • SRS – In SRS, superior image-guided technique is used to deliver an exact dose of radiation to a small tumour in the head and neck region.
  • SBRT – In SBRT, the same technique as SRS is performed in the other parts such as the liver, lung, spine etc.
  • Proton Therapy – In this proton beams are used to treat cancer.

Internal Radiotherapy: In Internal radiotherapy, also called Brachytherapy, a radioactive source or a needle is placed inside the body of the patient. The radioactive source can be solid as well as liquid. If a liquid source is used, it is often termed as radionuclide therapy. In this type, the patient’s movements are often restricted until the radioactivity has fully disappeared from his/her body.
