Gimballed linac speeds tumour tracking

Real-time tumour tracking (RTTT) functionality in a radiotherapy delivery system addresses the challenge of delivering a high dose of radiation to a tumour in motion, while limiting exposure to healthy surrounding tissue. However, this functionality has come at a price: lengthy set-up and treatment times of up to 100 minutes that are a deterrent for busy, staff-constrained hospital radiotherapy departments.
