What is Adaptive Radiation Therapy?
Radiotherapy, or radiation therapy, is a type of cancer treatment that uses high-energy radiation to destroy cancer cells or prevent them from growing and dividing. The radiation damages the DNA of cancer cells, which makes it difficult for them to survive and reproduce.
Adaptive radiation treatments are a more advanced form of radiotherapy. Cutting-edge technology at Cochise Oncology can target cancer cells while adapting to movement or changes in the tumor, allowing for safer and more precise treatments. Adaptive radiation makes it easier to exclusively target cancer cells without harming the surrounding tissues.
