The linear accelerator, or linac, is the most commonly used tool by radiation oncologists in Australia for the treatment of cancer. The movements and energy outputs from each linac allow it to perform treatments in a set number of ways. Linac accessories allow for more customised shaping of a beam. Most linacs can produce both electrons and photons as clinical beams through slightly different mechanisms.
