The 8th November is the International Day of Radiology, set on the anniversary of the discovery of x-ray radiation by Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895. This year, the day marks 125 years since Roentgen’s discovery and in the past century medical science and research has achieved incredible advancements using radiation.
Today, a large number of cancer patients will undergo some form of radiotherapy as part of their treatment. From standard photon radiotherapy to ground-breaking new proton beam therapy, radiation treatments have now become incredibly precise, targeting cancer cells with pin-point precision and without affecting the healthy body surrounding the tumour.
At CRUK RadNet City of London, we are committed to developing new solutions using radiation for treating cancer, and improving outcomes for patients.
