Standard External Beam Radiotherapy with Photons and Electrons
External beam radiation therapy (EBRT) is a type of radiation therapy that directs a beam of radiation from outside the body onto cancerous tissues within the body. EBRT delivers high-energy rays to tumors, using a special X-ray machine called a linear accelerator. This system can provide radiation from any angle and mold the radiation beams to the shape of the tumor.
Advantages of External Beam Radiation Therapy
Our state-of-the-art radiation technology enables our oncologists to more accurately target a tumor with higher doses of radiation, while minimizing damage to your healthy tissue and nearby organs. As a result, EBRT helps to lower the risk of side effects typically associated with radiation treatment.
