Report Scope
This research report categorizes the radiation therapy by technology, products and applications. The technology market is divided into three types of radiation therapy, which are external beam radiation therapy, internal radiation therapy/brachytherapy and systemic radiation therapy. External radiotherapy’s by-product is LINAC (linear accelerator); compact advanced radiotherapy systems is divided into CyberKnife, gamma knife and tomotherapy, and proton therapy system; and proton therapy system has two subsegments, which are cyclotrons and synchrotrons. Internal radiotherapy is divided into seeds applicators and electronic brachytherapy. External radiotherapy by technology is divided into image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT), intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), stereotactic technology, particle/proton beam therapy, tomotherapy, 3D-conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT) and volumetric modulated ARC therapy. Internal radiotherapy by technology is divided into two types: low-dose brachytherapy and high-dose brachytherapy. Systemic radiation therapy is bifurcated into two segments: alpha emitters and beta emitters.

Radiation therapy has also been studied based on the various applications: external radiation therapy applications: prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, and head and neck cancer. Internal radiation therapy applications include: prostate cancer, gynecological cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer and systemic radiation therapy, hyperthyroidism, bone metastasis, lymphoma and endocrine tumors. The global radiation therapy market is segmented in this report by region: North America, Europe, Asia and the Rest of the World.
