Radiation therapy or radiotherapy, often abbreviated RT, RTx, or XRT, is a therapy using ionizing radiation, generally as part of cancer treatment to control or kill malignant cells and normally delivered by a linear accelerator.

It may also be used as part of adjuvant therapy, to prevent tumor recurrence after surgery to remove a primary malignant tumor.
