blog

Electron beam with a Linear accelerator is a type of radiation treatment used to treat patients with cancer. A linear accelerator uses a microwave technology wherein electrons are accelerated to high energy and passed through the machine in the form of an electron beam that is targeted towards the region of the patient’s tumor. These treatments are designed in such a way that they destroy the cancerous cells while sparing the surrounding normal tissue and organs.
