The “Radiotherapy Market by Products, Technology & Applications Till 2016 - Cyberknife, Gammaknife, Linac, Tomotherapy, Cyclotron, Synchrotron, Radionuclides, Iodine-131, IMRT, IGRT, Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy & Stereotactic Radiosurgery (2011 – 2016), published by MarketsandMarkets analyzes and studies the major market drivers, restraints, and opportunities in Americas, Europe, Asia, and rest of the World including Japan.

Radiotherapy is the process of treatment of affected tissue through energy emitting particles such as X-rays, gamma rays, electron beams, or protons. There is a broad array of electromagnetic waves depending upon its frequencies and wavelengths. The shorter the wavelength, the higher the destruction capacity of damaged tissues. This short wavelength damages the tissues with ionizing radiation. Radiation generates free radicals and direct ionization of oxygen molecules. These ionized molecules cause different kind of DNA damages such as double strand breakage of DNA strands. This DNA damages lead to cell death.
