Photon beams is another term for x-rays. We generally use high-energy photon beams in radiation therapy because they can reach tumors positioned more deeply in the body. Just like other forms of external radiation, ionizing radiation is generated to damage the DNA of the cancer cells resulting in the reduction and killing of the tumor.
