EBRT for non-Hodgkin lymphoma
For patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) is targeted directly to the area where the lymphoma is found, and sometimes to nearby lymph nodes.
Some advantages of EBRT for non-Hodgkin lymphoma include:
- It’s a fast, painless outpatient procedure. A typical radiation treatment lasts just a few minutes.
- Unlike chemotherapy, which circulates throughout the body, external beam radiation therapy for non-Hodgkin lymphoma is targeted to a specific area.
- By targeting tumors with higher doses of radiation, EBRT helps minimize damage to healthy tissues and reduce side effects.
