Fantastic New Radiation Technique

My mildly claustrophobic mother in law just suffered through radiation treatments where she had to wear a mask and suffer through months of radiation treatments targeted near her brain stem. She was in a confined space and not allowed to move for prolonged periods.

Thankfully, it looks like she’ll make a good recovery. Still, I’m thinking this tech would have made her life a lot less painful. I’m guessing this will be a godsend for cancer patients. I’m truly amazed at the wizards who build products like these.
