Abstract

A new way of delivering radiotherapy at very high dose rates is described and compared with conventional radiotherapy. The ultrahigh dose-rate therapy reduces damage to normal pig skin and exerts potent activity against spontaneous nasal tumors in cat patients. The implications for clinical development of this approach are discussed.See related article by Vozenin et al., p. 35.
