Abstract

Since the discovery of X-rays in 1895, radiotherapy has been applied as a cancer treatment and is used in the treatment of approximately 50% of all cancer patients. It aims to maximise tumour cell death while at the same time minimising damage to normal cells and tissues surrounding the tumour.
