"Both the tumour and the affected organ move slightly in the body. This means that healthy tissue also risks being exposed to radiation using the present method. We can now prevent this," explains Bo Lennernäs.
It also means that the number of radiotherapy sessions can be reduced radically, from forty or so sessions to five or six. This in turn leads to faster treatment and so shorter waiting times for treatment.
"This method has been tested over a long time now, and is always the case it has had its 'teething troubles', but there have been few of these. We have resolved these problems and are now progressing to a launch phase," says Bo Lennernäs.
This invention has been used at a number of hospitals both in Sweden and elsewhere.
