Orthovoltage (Superficial Treatment)

Orthovoltage radiation treatments use lower x-ray energy than conventional radiation therapy treatments. These treatments are used for superficial lesions such as Keloids and skin cancers. Orthovoltage requires about fifteen minutes a day for set up. Treatment is typically delivered between 10 - 30 fractions.
