A headgear for radiation therapy is a type of mask that is worn on the head and shoulders and secured to the patient by straps. This mask is designed to restrict movement and limit exposure to radiation therapy. It also helps in maintaining alignment of the head with the body during treatment.

The radiotherapy position mask provides protection from the impact of radiation therapy, as well as it shapes how patients are positioned for treatment. It can also be used as a support for immobilization or positioning during treatment.
