Radio Therapy Side Effects


Radiotherapy Side Effects

IMP : Radiation-related solid cancers
Epidemiologic research has demonstrated that ionizing radiation in the form of radiotherapy accounts for the elevated risks of certain second cancers. An individual risk of radiation-related, or radiogenic, second cancer depends on several critical, often inter-dependent factors: the type and dose of radiation received; the amount of the body treated (treatment field); the part of the body irradiated and its inherent tissue sensitivity; and the age at irradiation.

At Orchid Oncology Centre we minimize the radiation exposure by using laser which does not cause any Ionising Radiation damage
