The efficacy of radiotherapy is decreased by tumour motion. If left uncorrected, this motion causes the radiation beam to miss the tumour, compromising cancer control and increasing toxicity. Dr. Chen-Yu Huang is developing the world’s first radiotherapy system capable of measuring and adapting to tumour motion during treatment. This innovative system will lead to high precision cancer radiotherapy, increasing survival and quality of life for the 44,000 Australian cancer radiotherapy patients every year.
