Radiation oncology is applied in two different ways as radiosurgery and radiotherapy using ionizing radiation. It is carried out in a planned manner as a team with radiation oncologists and radiotherapy technicians.
Radiotherapy and Radiosurgery
Radiotherapy, also known as radiation therapy among the people, is an application that provides the treatment of tissues consisting of cancer cells and, in some cases, benign tumors with radiation beams.
Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRC): Cancerous cells determined as targets in stereotactic radiosurgery are coordinated in three dimensions and then completely destroyed in a single session using a high-dose radiation beam. The treatment is repeated according to the disease.
Stereotactic Radiotherapy (SRT): In stereotactic radiotherapy, the target cancerous tissue is destroyed in multiple sessions instead of a single session, unlike SRC, by using lower radiation doses.
