Radiotherapy, also known as radiation therapy, is an effective treatment for cancer patients. It is a treatment modality that utilizes high energy x-rays or radioactive seeds to kill cancer cells. Radiotherapy often uses X-rays, but protons or other types of energy also can be used. In this era, radiotherapy remains an essential therapeutic tool for the treatment of many cancers. Under Dr Tang’s care, you are guaranteed holistic cancer care with speed and accuracy.

Dr Tang obtained his medical degree from the University of Newcastle, Australia in 1998 and completed his house officer training at the Hunter Area Health Service, Australia before returning to Singapore to start his specialty training in Radiation Oncology at the National University Hospital (NUH).

Volumetric modulated arc therapy [VMAT] involves the use of external radiation therapy beams being directed in a series of arcs or angles to allow for greater access to tumour. VMAT allows more difficult tumours, such as ones wrapped around other important structures, to be targeted precisely.
Image-guided radiation therapy [IGRT] is a radiation therapy which utilises advanced imaging equipment and computer software to accurately target tumours. This minimises the impact on surrounding healthy tissues, resulting in fewer potential side effects from treatment.
Brachytherapy is a special form of internal radiation therapy where a radioactive source is placed close to or inside the tumour.
Gynaecology brachytherapy is a form of radiation therapy used to treat cervix and endometrial cancer. It is a special form of internal radiation therapy where a radioactive source is placed closed or inside the tumour, to deliver the radiation treatment.
