Explanation:
e.g.:

"What is radiation therapy?
Radiation is a special kind of energy carried by waves or a stream of particles. It can come from special machines or from radioactive substances. When radiation is used at high doses (many times those used for x-ray exams), it can be used to treat cancer and other illnesses. Special equipment is used to aim the radiation at tumors or areas of the body where there is disease. The use of highenergy rays or particles to treat disease is called radiation therapy. Sometimes it's called radiotherapy, x-ray therapy, cobalt therapy, electron beam therapy, or irradiation."
