Tungsten Alloy Linear Accelerator

Tungsten alloy linear accelerator is the device most commonly used for external beam radiation treatments for patients with cancer. It customizes high energy x-rays or electrons to conform to a tumor's shape and destroy cancer cells while sparing surrounding normal tissue, and features several built-in safety measures to ensure that it will deliver the dose as prescribed and is routinely checked by a medical physicist to ensure it is working properly. The linear accelerator is used to treat all body sites.

Traditionally, lead is the best choice for shielding radiation because it is rich in the world and inexpensive, but toxic and dangerous. In fact, it ranks second in the US “Hazardous Substances Priority List”. Therefore, most linear accelerators are currently made of tungsten alloy. Tungsten alloys are ideal for shielding X-rays and gamma radiation, which can minimize radiation and reduce damage to the human body.
