Radiotherapy of an oncological disease can be done from the outside or the inside. We use two different procedures for this:
Percutaneous radiotherapy (external irradiation)
This form of radiation uses various techniques, such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) or image-guided radation therapy (IGRT), in order to detect the tumour much more accurately and precisely. High-precision field adjustments make it possible to use radiation therapy that also has good results with more radiation-resistant tumours.
Brachytherapy (irradiation from inside)
Brachytherapy is used particularly for malignant tumours of the prostate, female breast, uterus, lungs and oesophagus. In this gentle and very precise form of radiation therapy, the cancer is destroyed directly in the tumour region with radioactive radiation through tubes, hoses or needles.
We will be pleased to advise you in detail on the exact procedures and implementation of these radiotherapy procedures in the respective case.
