Carbon Ion radiation is a groundbreaking procedure in Cancer Treatment. A progressive step in Radiation Therapy, carbon ion radiation involves highly charged carbon ions accelerated at a very high frequency. These carbon nuclei are then directed towards the cancerous tumor. The carbon ions are particularly heavy and loaded with energy, which leads this radiation to be also called heavy ion therapy. The biological effectiveness of carbon ions is even greater than that of protons and is therefore used for only certain types of cancer. In some cases, because of its efficiency and high precision with fewest side effects, carbon ion therapy is the best possible treatment.
Carbon Ion Radiation (Or particle therapy) is biologically much more effective. Additionally, tumors unresponsive to conventional radiation can be treated effectively.
