Radiation therapy involves treating cancer with very precise beams of high-energy radiation. Radiation has been used for over 100 years to treat cancer, but recent advances in computer technology have allowed unprecedented accuracy and delivery to destroy cancer cells while limiting side effects in normal tissue. Radiation may be delivered alone or in combination with surgery and/or chemotherapy. Approximately 60 percent of cancer patients will require radiation therapy at some time during the course of their illness. Radiation therapy is safe when delivered by a highly-trained team of experts.
