8-| what is pion therapy?

Loading...

Pion radiotherapy is a novel form of cancer treatment that has been extensively investigated for tumours of the brain and pelvic area. A drawback of conventional radiation therapy (with photons) is the unwanted radiation which it delivers to the healthy tissue surrounding the tumour as it penetrates to where the cancer cells are located. In contrast, pion therapy concentrates the cell-killing power of the radiation more selectively in the tumour, while reducing the effects on nearby normal tissue.
