m's speed to further limit the likelihood of patient movement during treatment, thereby improving the accuracy and safety of SRT.

For its Versa HD systems, St James's will prioritize the treatment of these inoperable lung cancer patients, in addition to those with prostate cancer.

"We are managing a heavy workload of more than 7,000 new radiotherapy patients per year," says Kevin Franks , M.D., Consultant in Clinical Oncology at St James's. "The Versa HD systems will definitely enhance our treatment efficiency. In fact, we have an ambitious plan to treat over 60 patients per day on the first Versa HD installed in our department. Our initial experience indicates this is achievable."

"In addition to minimizing risk of irradiating healthy tissue, we also decrease treatment times, making it a much better experience for the patient," he adds. "Moreover, by reducing treatment times, we should be able to add more patients to the daily schedule, which will increase access to this technology for patients in Leeds and throughout Yorkshire."
