Radiotherapy

Effective state-of-the-art treatments

Radiotherapy

Radiotherapy is a therapeutic method used mainly in the treatment of oncologic diseases. It uses radiation similar to the one used in a common X-ray but with higher energy release. A machine, called the linear accelerator, usually generates the radiation. 

The majority of this equipment produces two kinds of particles, photons and electrons, which are used in the treatment sessions. This therapeutic method can be used before surgery, after surgery or as a unique treatment that may or not be associated with other methods like chemotherapy.

The adopted strategy will depend on several factors associated with the clinical situation. Radiation makes changes in the cells of the organs and tissues of the human body.

Radiotherapy is a type of treatment used both in oncology and in benign tumors. It uses ionizing radiation – the most frequent radiation is the x-ray, the same as the one used in radiographs but with higher energy – to destroy or block cell growth. For oncologic treatments, the dose is planned so that the healthy cells can recover from the alterations radiation makes and at the same time, malignant cells are eliminated. Radiotherapy is used also to reduce tumor volume, to alleviate symptoms like pain or blood loss.

RADIOTHERAPY TREATMENTS

The best way to treat a tumor depends on several factors, like its localization and the state of the disease, among others.

Radiotherapy treatment is one of the most used nowadays, not only because it is effective but also because it is a less evasive approach. In order to treat a benign or malignant tumor through radiotherapy there are several techniques that can be applied according to each case.

In the scope of Prostate Radiotherapy, CRP is the only center in Portugal to introduce an innovative device to protect the rectum through all radiotherapy course. This device - bio-protective balloon - allows to properly move the rectum out of the treatment field in order to avoid acute and late toxicity related complications.
