Radiation Therapy Quiz - Quiz

Do you know enough about radiation therapy? Can you score high on this radiation therapy quiz? Radiation therapy or radiotherapy, which is often abbreviated as RT, RTx, or XRT, is known as a therapy that uses ionizing radiation. It is generally provided as a part of cancer treatment to kill malignant cells. It is normally delivered by a linear accelerator. It has an important role in medical field. Take some questions on the same, and let's see what you know.
