Radiotherapy doesn’t have to be given from outside the body. Radioactive implants and drinks stay close to tumours to minimise side effects.
Researchers believe that focused high doses of radiotherapy could one day replace surgery for small cancers in certain organs.
In part 4 of our radiotherapy series we look at MRI-guided radiotherapy, and how it could help improve accuracy and reduce side effects.
Part three of our new blog series on radiotherapy explores a type of radiotherapy treatment called IMRT. We cover what it is, how it’s already improved the lives of many patients and why this number will continue to grow.
