Cherenkov photo-activation enhances radiotherapy

Researchers at Duke University have developed a novel way to improve the efficacy of radiotherapy, using a phototherapeutic agent activated by Cherenkov light produced by the therapeutic photon beam. The technique – radiotherapy enhanced with Cherenkov photo-activation (RECA) – shows promise for increasing both local control and tumour immunogenicity.
