Around half the population will be treated for cancer at some stage of their lives. A challenge during cancer treatment is ensuring that the patient receives an accurate dose of radiation, helping to minimize treatment complications.
TRUEinvivo founder Dr. Shakardokht Jafari is revolutionising the way we treat cancer patients. Funding from Innovate UK’s The Sustainable Innovation Fund allowed TRUEinvivo to develop a feedback system in the form of a tiny radiation detector, that is placed inside the to track the patient’s real time response during cancer treatment. The result is an improved survival rate and a better quality of life during treatment.
