Analysing big data to predict men’s risk of side effects could help personalize radiotherapy treatment for prostate cancer, according to new research presented at the National Cancer Research Institute’s (NCRI) Cancer Conference in Liverpool.

This included medical history, genetics, radiotherapy dose, and reported side effects.
