Abstract

Annually over 300, 000 people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. Radiotherapy accounts for 40% of those either cured or for whose survival has been prolonged, by using ionising radiation, of which protons are the most effective form, to kill cancer cells with minimal damage to healthy tissue. To guide and confirm treatment, we will need some of the most demanding medical imaging technology to date.
The exhibit will outline the science and technology behind PRaVDA.
