The usage of high-energy radiation to treat cancer in which the ability of cancer cells to reproduce are destroyed and the body naturally get rid of these cells. Radiation therapy given by radioactive sources that are put inside the patient is called brachytherapy.
Other techniques that enable ultra-precise doses of radiation to tumours include stereotactic radiosurgery, which uses 3-D imaging to determine the exact coordinates of a tumour. The highly focused gamma rays or x-rays then converge on the tumour to treat it.
