B.Sc. Radiotherapy Technology
What is Radiotherapy Technology?
Radiotherapy technology is one of the treatment lines for cancer. The process involves the deposition of energy in the targeted cells through ionising radiation causing destruction of the cells and ceasing their growth. Radiotherapy can be used as a primary treatment option for cancer before surgery to shrink a cancerous tumour. It can also be used after surgery to stop the growth of any remaining cancer cells or in combination treatment with chemotherapy or to alleviate symptoms caused by cancer.
Bachelor of Science in Radiotherapy Technology (BMRT)
It is a 3-year full-time undergraduate radiography course that imparts the knowledge about radiation therapy to treat cancer and other diseases with ionizing radiation.
