Radiation Oncology

The branch of Oncology dealing with Radiation therapy is termed as Radiation Oncology. The main Radiotherapeutic methods can be classified in: Teleradiotherapy, Brachy-radiotherapy, and Metabolic radiotherapy. Tele-radiotherapy is also termed as External transcutaneous / Distant radiotherapy , in which case the radiation source is situated at a certain distance from the tissue to be treated. Brachytherapy is also termed Short direct radiotherapy /Curitherapy. The radiation source can be placed in contact with the tumor or it can be implanted in the tumor. Curative radiotherapy is indicated to be used in: Sticker’s sarcoma, Mastocytomas with particular locations, such as ears, nose, extremities, eyelids, etc.; Acanthomatous epulis; Ameloblastoma; Nasal cavity adenocarcinoma and Anal gland adenocarcinoma. Stereotactic radiosurgery is a single-day procedure for treating small intracranial lesions. Metabolic radiotherapy represents the administration of isotopes or isotope carrying molecules that selectively concentrate in a certain tissue into which they enter as metabolites. For Example; iodine 131 - in Thyroid cancer; phosphorus 32 - in Myeloproliferative disorders
