Photon Radiation

Also known as X-rays. Low-energy photon radiation has just enough photon energy to penetrate the body for an x-ray film but cause minimal harm to the cells. High-energy photon radiation (such as IMRT radiation) is produced by a linear accelerator and is capable of killing cells, including cancer cells.
