Radiation Oncology & Interventional Radiology

Radiation oncology may be a medical speciality that involves the controlled use of radiation to treat cancer either for cure, or to decrease pain and different symptoms caused by cancer. Radiation therapy may be a part of treatment in around four-hundredth of all patients cured of cancer. Radiation therapy are often applied safely to a large vary of cancers, and should be used alone or in conjunction with surgery, therapy and different treatments. It is sometimes fully non-invasive, and accessed through out-patient clinics. Radiation therapy may be extremely value effective cancer treatment.

Interventional Radiology (IR) refers to a range of techniques which rely on the use radiological image guidance (X-ray fluoroscopy, ultrasound, computed tomography [CT] or magnetic resonance imaging [MRI]) to precisely target therapy. Most IR treatments are minimally invasive alternatives to open and laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery. As several IR procedures begin with passing a needle through the skin to the target it's generally referred to as puncture surgery
