External beam radiation therapy is generally delivered in the form of either X-rays (photons) or electrons. During this type of radiation, the high-energy beams come from a machine outside of the body that aims the beams at a precise point on the body.
This therapy can be used to treat cancer that lies deep in the body or close to the skin surface, adjusting the energy of the beam accordingly.
