Radiation therapy treatments use high power energy waves to destroy cancer cells.
Treatment planning sessions allow the radiation oncology team to plan the best set-up that will enable them to most effectively target the prostate (or other body parts) so that it affects as little healthy tissue as possible.
Fiducial Marker Placement
For some types of radiation therapy, such as prostate cancer, fiducial markers are implanted in a process similar to a biopsy.
