3-D pictures of tumours

A new scanner giving 3-D pictures has been combined with radiotherapy in a trial at Christie Hospital, Manchester. Professor Chris Moore said, "For the first time the system lets us see what we want to hit with our treatment in real time".

Professor Ann Barrett added that, "The advantage of having an on-line imaging system is that it can instantaneously correct for any movement and ensure that you are still treating what you intend to treat".
