Orthovoltage Radiation for Palliative Care
X-rays were first documented to relieve pain from bone metastases in 1907 and their palliative use continues due to speed of pain relief. With most cancers that are capable of metastasizing to bony tissue such as the ribs or soft tissue lesions—including the most common prostate, lung and breast cancers—the need for palliative treatments will increase as primary disease local control rates increase and reoccurrence becomes more common. To learn how the Xstrahl orthovoltage systems can help your clinic deliver X-rays for pain relief in palliative care to your patients, contact Xstrahl.
