Indications

As superficial radiation therapy makes its way into more medical practices, there will be an increased need for wider knowledge.

Radiation physicists play an important role in both determining the dose of radiation delivered and the implementation of safety measures for staff and patients.

The body constantly makes new cells to help us grow, to replace worn-out tissue and heal injuries.
Sometimes cells don’t grow, divide and die in the usual way. This may cause blood or lymph fluid to become abnormal, or form a lump called a tumour. A tumour can be benign or malignant.

The use of X-ray is unrivalled particularly in skin tumours and their precursors. Softray has revolutionised radiotherapy with high tech machines delivering high dose and low dose therapy, with computerised systems that allow practitioners to record their findings and share with experts in Switzerland.

Radiotherapy is also effective for the reduction of tissue inflammation for pain relief .
It is proven that at proper dosage it supports the immune system and accelerates the healing process.

Unlike other therapeutic methods, radiotherapy is physically very gentle and painless for the patient, the benefits are also long term and risk free.
