Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Linear accelerator. Varian linear accelerator upside down, with lead shielding removed for servicing. An oncology physics technician is seen reflected in the machine at upper centre. Linear accelerators are used in radiotherapy as a source of high-voltage X-rays, which can deliver a precisely targeted dose of radiation to treat some cancers. This treatment is often combined with surgery or chemotherapy (drug treatment). Photographed at the Edinburgh Cancer Centre, UK.
