machines produce X-rays with a power of 150-500kVp, while megavoltage machines (cobalt-60 and linear accelerators) emit photons of energy greater than 1,000,000 volts.
Electron beam therapy is well adapted as well as orthovoltage
radiation therapy (100 kV).
Treatments such as superficial and orthovoltage
X-rays (photons) therapy, brachytherapy ([sz]-rays using phosphorus-32[sup]/strontium-90, a-rays using cobalt-60[sup]/iridium-192),[sup] and electron beam ([sz]-rays)[sup] were all proven to be helpful, even at different levels, suggesting a great improvement in postoperative irradiation protocols happened in last few decades.
In a similar case, orthovoltage
x-rays, a type of external beam radiation therapy, was used for treatment of a periorbital lymphoreticular mass in a young African grey parrot.
treated HeLa tumor cells with various common low energy levels of orthovoltage
X-rays and megavoltage gamma-rays (Co-60) to study the cell killing efficacy in the presence of folate modified GNPs and nonfunctionalized GNPs.
In Protocol 1, male Stat4-/- C57Bl/6J and littermate controls, 8 weeks old, were sublethally irradiated using 2 irradiation regimens of 6 Gy each with a 4-hour interval between irradiation processes (orthovoltage

X-ray treatment unit as a radiation research system in a small-animal cancer model," Journal of Experimental & Clinical Cancer Research, vol.
(24), despite being the response to 18.0 MV, is higher and more similar to those found with orthovoltage
X-rays rather than gamma sources.
Peyronie's disease: A study of its natural history and treatment with orthovoltage
For TI and early T2 lesions, radiation therapy can be delivered by a combination of external beam orthovoltage
therapy, or electron beam therapy, and interstitial implant without significant radiation complications.

radiotherapy in two dogs.
