Dr Theodore Lawrence - University of Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor, USA

Dr Lawrence talks to ecancertv at NCRI 2015 about his work looking at future directions of radiation therapy in pancreatic and liver cancer.

In particular, he talks about how advances in radiation mean that it can now be used in a more precise way that minimises damage to healthy tissue.

He also discusses the ways in which treatment can be personalised, such as by measuring liver function to see which patient subset can take a heavier dose of radiation.
