Radiotherapy

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), a type of external beam radiation therapy, is the most commonly used approach for pediatric patients. This computer-guided technology can precisely target cancer cells,  which reduces the radiation delivered to nearby normal tissue and minimizes side effects. X-rays, CT scanning, MRI scanning, ultrasound and other radiological techniques to localise and guide biopsy. Scintigraphy, Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), Positron emission tomography (PET) and other methods of nuclear medicine to identify areas suspicious for malignancy.

Radiotherapy is a treatment to destroy cancer cells with radiation. A beam of radiation is targeted on the cancer, which shrinks it.
