Radiation therapy may be used to treat lip cancer on its own or after surgery. While many providers deliver this therapy using linear accelerators, X-ray therapy using smaller treatment devices is also available. X-ray therapy devices often provide greater ease-of-use and patient comfort, and significantly fewer start-up costs, while offering similar treatment outcomes to traditional linac-based radiotherapy. In this webcast, Dr. Yevgeniy Ishkinin from the Kazakh Research Institute of Oncology and Radiology reviewed several lip cancer cases he has treated using X-ray therapy over the past three years.
