More cancer patients to be treated by stereotactic radiotherapy on Mount Vernon’s CyberKnife

Today NHS England has announced that the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre is one of several centres across England to be included in a national evaluation programme to assess the benefit of a specialist form of radiotherapy – called stereotactic ablative radiotherapy or SABR for short – in treating some forms of cancer. SABR is a modern, more precise delivery technique of radiotherapy, which delivers high doses of radiation while causing less damage to surrounding healthy tissue than conventional radiotherapy.
