New Cancer treatment launched in Cork
Last updated on
Bon Secours Radiotherapy Cork in Partnership with UPMC Hillman Cancer Centre have officially launched Surface Guided Radiation Therapy at the cancer centre in Cork.
During traditional radiation therapy, patients will receive small permanent tattoos on their skin to help the radiation therapist position them for treatment. However, this new technology removes that process.
Speaking at the launch, Mary Hickey, Operations Manager, said:
“At the Bon Secours Radiotherapy Cork in partnership with UPMC Hillman Cancer Centre, we are constantly striving to provide the best possible care for our patients and introducing this SGRT precision technology has enhanced patient safety and comfort.”
