Overseas visitors pick up tips about targeted therapy
International physicians and radiation physicists have been visiting City of Hope to learn how radiation oncologists use TomoTherapy to deliver more targeted radiation as part of the bone marrow transplantation (BMT) process. The method, which was developed at City of Hope, is called total marrow irradiation, or TMI.
Faculty members from Rene Gauducheau Cancer Centre in Nantes, France, tour City of Hope’s facilities.
