Radiation Therapy Market:
WiseGuyReports.com adds “Radiation Therapy Global Market – Forecast To 2024” reports to its database.
Radiation therapy refers to the popular form of cancer treatment. Radiation therapy can completely cure cancer or just give some amount of relief to the sufferings of the patients. It helps in killing the cancerous cells. But its use does have side effects by causing damage to the healthy cells as well as the surrounding organs. The radiation exposure also has the potential to cause secondary cancer.
Radiation therapy is broadly classified into three types, internal radiation therapy, external-beam radiation therapy, and systemic radiation therapy. The internal radiation therapy is done by placing radioactive material inside the patient’s body close to the cancer cells. The external radiation therapy is delivered outside the patient’s body with the help of a machine. In the case of systemic radiation therapy, radioactive substances like radioactive iodine are made to pass through the blood of the cancer patient to kill the cancer cells.
Radiation therapy can be used alone to treat the patients, or it can be used along with chemotherapy, surgery or even at times both. The advancements in technology have helped in developing radiation therapy with lesser side effects — careful planning and treatment help in reducing the risks of complications.
