Factors to Know About Dental radiology and radiotherapy
Radiotherapy, also called radiation therapy, is the treatment of cancer and other diseases with ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation deposits energy that injures or destroys cells in the area being treated (the target tissue) by damaging the genetic material (DNA) in the individual cells, making it impossible for them to continue to grow. Although radiation damages both cancer cells and normal cells, normal, healthy cells are able to repair themselves and return to proper functioning. Radiotherapy may be used to treat localized solid tumors, such as those cancers associated with the oral environment. It can also be used to treat leukemia and lymphoma.
All studies under this technique related to oral cancer and its prevention and treatment is accumulated under heading of Dental radiology.
