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.

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.

The striking architectural form of the Centre houses carefully planned, complex medical technologies including linear accelerators, computed tomography scanners, and an orthovoltage
The calibration factor per batch was obtained by irradiating 7 TLDs in a 100 kV orthovoltage
beam that had been calibrated against a secondary standard dosimeter.

In the frail elderly patient with superficial lesions in the lower third of the rectum endocavity radiation with orthovoltage
applicators or high-dose-rate brachytherapy give equivalent results to local excision (96% for T1 tumours, 86% for T2).
