Detroit Hospital Claims Better Radiation Therapy
Posted March 31st, 2014 @ 4:05am by WOOD Radio News Team

Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit is the first in North America with a new non-surgical cancer treatment.

What they call The Edge is a heavier dose of radiation, more precisely targeted on cancer tumors, and for only 15 minutes at a time.

Doctor Benjamin Movsas says he uses real-time imaging and can attack cancers where surgeons fear to cut.

But only on tumors no larger than two inches across.
