External Beam Radiation PDF Print E-mail
External Beam Radiation is the most common type of radiotherapy. It is used for the treatment of all types of cancer. Some of the common ones treated include cancers of the breast, prostate, head and neck, brain, lung, cervix and rectum.

The machine used to deliver External Beam Radiation Therapy, is a Varian Linear Accelerator. It has inbuilt advanced technology that delivers radiation treatment to very high accuracy and precision. It produces higher energy radiation that is more penetrating than Cobalt technology that is offered elsewhere on the island. This results in much higher radiation dose delivered to the cancer cells or tumour and with less skin damage than Cobalt.
