Radiation oncology treats patients with all kinds of cancer (Malignant tumor), conducts physical and biological studies on the principle of radiation treatment, and fosters specialists of radiation oncology, medical physicists, radiogical technologists, and nurses responsible for radiation treatment. Radiation treatment prolongs lives by preventing local recurrence and remote metastasis in advance because it treats all kinds of cancer by using high energy ionizing radiation and improves the quality of life while they live by improving their symptoms even though they cannot be completely recovered.
Purposes of radiology treatment
Radical radiation treatment: treats patients with incipient cancer with radiation treatment independently or with it, surgery, or anticancer drugs together to remove cancer completely. It achieves maximum results by reducing damage of normal tissue around cancer and irritating cancer tissue as much as possible. It is the treatment method that substitutes for surgery targeting patients who cannot undergo surgical operations or do reject them.
Palliative radiation treatment: It is used in the patients who cannot completely be recovered to relieve unbearable pain or prevent fracture. And it can be used to relieve symptoms and recover physiological functions if pain presses spinal cord or nerves due to central nervous system metastasis or important blood vessels or coronary organs.
