RADIATION THERAPY EXTERNAL BEAM
External beam radiation therapy, the radiation oncology team uses a machine called a linear accelerator, or linac.

A linac uses electricity to form a stream of fast-moving subatomic (electron) particles. This creates high-energy radiation that is used to kill cancerous cells.

STEREOTACTIC (SABR, SRS, GAMMA)
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) delivers high doses of radiation with sub millimetre precision positioning. It is often used to treat small tumours with well-defined edges.

It is most commonly used to treat primary brain or spinal tumours – as well as secondary brain tumours.

BRACHYTHERAPY
Brachytherapy involves radiation delivered from a tiny source implanted directly into or next to the tumour.

These sources produce gamma-rays, which have the same effect on cancer cells as X-rays.
