Prof Carol Benn speaks to ecancer about IORT at the WITS University in South Africa.

She highlights the use of intraoperative radiation therapy is critically important in Africa and sub-Saharan Africa due to the lack of accessibility to radiation facilities.

She talks about the use of IORT at her institute and the method of IORT used on different breast cancer types.

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to oncology and cancer care and Prof Benn advises that patients should be judged according to their condition and cancer type if IORT can work for them or not.
