Novel brachytherapy device treats eye cancer with intensity-modulated radiation

Physics World

Physics World detailed a paper authored by David Medich, associate professor, Physics, in the article, “Novel Brachytherapy Device Treats Eye Cancer with Intensity-Modulated Radiation.” “David Medich, an associate professor of physics at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, was explaining why internal radiation, or brachytherapy, may be preferable for treating ocular melanomas over external-beam radiation therapy: using brachytherapy to deliver radiation to an ocular tumour also protects healthy tissues and critical structures, like the optic nerve and retina, from radiation-induced damage,” the article stated.
