Prof Uwe Oelfke - The Institute of Cancer Research, London, UK

Prof Oelfke talks to ecancertv at NCRI 2015 about new proton facilities which are opening soon in the UK.

This technology is especially important in paediatric cancers as it reduces the harm done by the protons to healthy tissue by better controlling their penetration, he explains.

He also discusses the benefits of MRI-guided radiation therapy.

Since the technology is expensive, we need to really demonstrate the value of the therapy, he argues.
