  • Radiotherapy
    Radiotherapy uses high-energy rays to destroy cancerous cells in the treatment area. It can damage the ability of cancer cells to proliferate without harming the surrounding normal cells.

    There are unprecedented advances in radiotherapy technologies and techniques these years, many of which incorporate new concepts and skills to precisely locate tumours, instantly tailor the shape of X-ray beams and accurately deliver doses of radiation to moving tumours. The introduction of Radixact X9, which is the next generation of helical radiation therapy technology, and Asia’s first Unity MR Linac in HKSH Eastern Medical Centre are important innovations in radiotherapy, allowing radiation to be aimed at tumours with extreme precision.
