Dr Frank Giordano speaks to ecancer at the Global Health Catalyst Summit 2019 at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts about intra-operative radiotherapy.

He firstly describes how this radiotherapy is given, and some of the many benefits to taking this single shot of radiotherapy.

Dr Giordano describes how this will be useful in low and middle income countries, as it could mean that treatment is a lot more efficient for a certain subset of patients, but he emphasises that this is a very specific subset.
