Say it quietly, but there’s a radiotherapy revolution coming. Doctors are on their way to developing a kinder, more effective approach for delivering radiotherapy. And in the process they hope to spare patients time and side effects, and the NHS cash. To do this they’re combining imaging techniques that see inside patients, such as MRI, with radiotherapy machines that deliver treatment. In doing so they can pinpoint the tumour with supreme accuracy, and target radiotherapy to exactly where it needs to go.
