An innovative radiotherapy treatment will "eliminate the need for numerous hospital visits" and greatly improve the patient's quality of life, a health chief said. Professor Carole Longson, director of health technology evaluation at Nice, said: Unlike regular radiotherapy, with the Intrabeam Radiotherapy System only one dose is required.
