Cardiac monitoring generally refers to continuous or intermittent monitoring of heart activity, generally by electrocardiography, with assessment of the patient's condition relative to their cardiac rhythm.
RADIOGRAPHY is the treatment of disease, especially cancer, using X-rays or similar forms of radiation.

The cardiac monitor is a device that shows the electrical and pressure waveforms of the cardiovascular system for measurement and treatment. Parameters specific to respiratory function can also be measured.

Radiotherapy (also called radiation therapy) is a cancer treatment that uses high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors.
Radiotherapy, simply put, is the use of radiation, usually X-rays, to treat cancer.

1.... The cardiac monitor is a device that shows the heart's electrical activity as a wave pattern on a monitor. It is a bedside monitor.
The monitor provides a visual display of the patient's heart rhythm, which is particularly useful information during heart attacks, when patients can develop lethal cardiac arrhythmias. The monitor sounds an alarm if the patient's heart rate goes above or below a predetermined number. An automatic blood pressure cuff and a pulse oximeter, which measures the oxygen saturation in the blood,are also included with some monitors.
The cardiac monitor continuously shows the cardiac rhythm and sends the electrocardiogram (EKG) tracing to a main monitor in the nursing station. Most commonly used in emergency rooms and critical care areas, cardiac monitoring allows for continual observation of several patients. Aside from monitoring cardiac patients, continuous monitoring is useful for observation of postoperative patients, patients with severe electrolyte imbalances, and other unstable patients. Continuous cardiac monitoring allows for prompt identification and initiation of treatment for cardiac arrhythmias and other conditions

2..... RADIO THERAPY often abbreviated RT, RTx, or XRT, is therapy using ionizing radiation, generally as part of cancer treatment to control or kill malignant cells and normally delivered by a linear accelerator. Radiation therapy may be curative in a number of types of cancer if they are localized to one area of the body. It may also be used as part of adjuvant therapy, to prevent tumor recurrence after surgery to remove a primary malignant tumor (for example, early stages of bosom cancer).

A Cardiac monitor is a machine connected to the patient that monitors and shows the electrical and pressure wave forms of the cardiovascular system for measurement and treatment.
It is also called Ekrtro cardiogram (EKG). Additional monitory component allow cardiovascular pressure and cardiac output to be monitored and displayed as required for patient treatment.
Oxygen saturation of artterial blood can also be monitored, continuously respiratory function can alao be measured. Continuous cardiovascular and plumonary monitoring allows for prompt identfication and initiation of treatment.
Radiotherapy also called radiation therapy. This therapy uses ionizing radiation to destroy or kill malignant cells, it is used mostly for cancer treatment especially if the cell are located in ome place.
Radiation therapy is synergestic to chemotherapy and can be used before, durind and after chemotherapy in susceptible cancer. Ionizing radiation works by damaging the DNA of the cancerous tissue leading to cell death.
