What Are the Benefits of Orthovoltage Therapy?
Sometimes there is no substitute for the original. Orthovoltage radiation therapy has been available for decades. For treating very superficial tumors, like skin cancer, orthovoltage often is a superior form of external beam radiation therapy in its ability to minimize normal tissue exposure to radiation. No longer frequently utilized by many radiation oncology centers that favor “high tech” approaches, Radiation Oncology Associates continues to use orthovoltage therapy in situations where therapeutic benefit is expected.
Currently we provide orthovoltage therapy in Lowell, Manchester.
