New machine targets ‘moving tumours’

Cancer patients with moving’ tumours will be treated with ever greater accuracy thanks to a super smart radiotherapy machine that can track and target cancers by making ten thousand calculations a second. Kent Oncology Centre at Canterbury, which is part of Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust, is officially opening the first radiotherapy machine in the county today, which has the very latest state-of-the-art “Truebeam” treatment technology installed.
