This chapter is devoted to a discussion of theoretical aspects of disk-loaded waveguides used for acceleration of electrons with linear accelerators (linacs) in treatment of cancer with ionizing radiation. Linacs represent a significant technological advancement over x-ray machines and cobalt-60 units which were used for routine radiotherapy in the past before the advent of linacs.
