“The pace of development in Medicine has been incredible. Over the course of my career, I have seen radiotherapy advance from a 2D “mark the treatment area on skin” to 3D “visualise and localise tumours with CT/MRI scans”, to 4D imaging where motion effects on tumour location due to breathing can be tracked. I’m especially excited about the upcoming Proton Therapy with its potential to improve cure rates with fewer side effects. It will be a game-changer.”
