Kelsey Keenan speaks to ecancer at the ONS 2020 virtual meeting about cyber knife radiation, which is an emerging treatment technology.

She outlines initially how the treatment works, and gives particular detail about their focus on treating prostate cancer.

Kelsey then explains how recent developments have improved patient comfort and also supported the patient's care, and how nursing is an integral backbone of this process.

She finalises by discussing some of the barriers imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and how the organisation has managed these obstacles.
