Total Body Irradiation (TBI) is a radiotherapy technique used to ablate the bone marrow and immune system prior to bone marrow transplantation or peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. It may be used as part of high-dose treatment of some leukaemias and lymphomas. The aim of this type of ablative therapy is to prevent rejection of the transplanted cells.
