Radiotherapy is a wonderful treatment for cancer for most patients but for some there are unexpected or possibly even seriously harmful side effects. One problem is that no one can see or measure the radiation inside the body in order to check the dose.
Using bead arrays the delivered dose can be measured directly at the tumour and any inaccuracy can be corrected in the next session. The patient and clinicians still have to wait a few weeks to see if the cancer is cured but they can be much more confidant that the planned dose was delivered accurately. The aim is to reduce harm to patients and save them from remedial or repeated medical treatment.
