RCR response to NICE guidance on the use of Intrabeam therapy for breast cancer patients

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has published its guidance on the use of Intrabeam radiotherapy for breast cancer patients. Dr Jeanette Dickson, Vice President, Clinical Oncology at The Royal College of Radiologists (RCR), said: “The RCR is disappointed that in the face of expert concerns, NICE has approved limited use of Intrabeam for b reast cancer patients. The College fully agrees that patient choice is paramount, but that choice should be informed, based on high level evidence.”
