Radiation therapy techniques can include: Magnetic Resonance Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (MRIgRT), Deep Inspiration Breath Hold (DIBH), External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT), Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS), Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiation Therapy (SABR), Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT), and specialised non-surgical treatment for skin cancer and some benign conditions.

Considerable research and clinical evidence has established that exercise may be beneficial for people with cancer; however, there is no one-size-fits-all approach.1,2 Every person’s circumstances are unique and these should be take into account. Tailored exercise programs designed by an exercise professional that include both aerobic and resistance training activities have been shown to provide benefits.3 To learn more about incorporating exercise during your cancer journey, please speak with your doctor and treatment team.
