Top 3 Factors Shaping the Radiotherapy Patient Positioning Accessories Market
Advanced Radiotherapy Devices to Boost Scope of Penetration for Radiotherapy Patient Positioning Accessories
Radiation therapy is generally a two-step process: Imaging for planning and radiotherapy. The radiation oncologist uses a CT scan image to visualise the tumour and its surrounding area to plan the radiation treatment. Imaging is also used during the course of the treatment to ensure that the treatment is targeted towards cancer.
According to the National Cancer Institute, US, CT scans are to be used according to the norms, however, MRI, ultrasound, and PET scans can also be used. Manufactures of radiotherapy devices are focusing on combining the two steps of radiation therapy.
