Global Radiation Therapy Equipment Market 2014-2018 adds report Global Radiation Therapy Equipment Market 2014-2018 to its store.Radiation therapy equipment is used to perform radiation therapy, also known as radiotherapy or radiation oncology, which is a procedure used in the treatment of cancer. It involves delivering high doses of radiation consisting of photons, electrons or gamma rays to kill cancer cells and reduce the rate at which the cancerous cells multiply by damaging the DNA inside the tumor cells. Radiation therapy is used to treat cancers of the head and neck, bladder, and lung as well as Hodgkin’s disease. Radiation therapy can be administered in several ways. The type of therapy prescribed by oncologists depends on factors such as the type of cancer, the stage of the cancer, the size of the tumor, the position of the tumor in the body, the age of the patient, and the patient''s medical history. Radiation therapy can either be given independently or in conjunction with other cancer treatments such as surgery and chemotherapy.

Analyst said: There has been an increase in the adoption of fully comprehensive systems for treatment planning to provide radiation therapy. Such comprehensive systems offer advanced features that allow complete planning of the process, from patient data acquisition to plan validation. These information systems provide comprehensive information and image management solutions. It allows the simplification of radiation therapy planning for different kinds of treatment such as 3D conformal, IMRT, electron, proton, and brachytherapy. These comprehensive systems provide flexibility to clinicians in order to quickly tailor plans for each patient. Therefore, increasing adoption of fully comprehensive systems is an emerging trend in the market.
