Radiotherapy is the use of high-energy radiation to destroy cancer cells. The treatment is non-invasive and delivered from outside the body by a large machine called a linear accelerator which works by targeting a focused beam of x-rays directly at the tumour area. Treatment is safe, completely painless and takes only a few minutes each day.
At Nova Healthcare our unique partnership with Leeds Cancer Centre means that we have access to the very latest technology and are able to offer our patients treatment using advanced radiotherapy techniques, which ensure that the tumour is treated, whilst healthy surrounding tissue is spared.
Advanced radiotherapy techniques include:
As a patient of Nova Healthcare, you can rest assured that your radiotherapy treatment is tailored according to your individual needs, planned and managed by your dedicated consultant and given by a highly trained therapy radiographer who is available to support and guide you through your treatment.
