New technology to treat the unfair disease cancer

Cancer is a particularly unfair disease

The world can be an unfair and nasty place, even a somehow ignorant place – that we all already know. The number of unfair and nasty things in the world are somewhat innumerable – constantly ongoing wars and oppression, starvation and diseases, among many other things. A lot of these nasty things have a grand variating risk of affecting us depend on geographical location, financial status, age, general prosperous and the availability of social safety nets. However there is one mutual nasty disease that the grand majority of our population fear. The disease is best known as cancer, and cancer is an particularly unfair disease. Whoever you are, wherever you are and whatever kind of lifestyle you are living – you have an almost equally grand risk of being affected by cancer. Cancer does not care whether you are 75 years old or 5 years old. You can suffer from lung cancer regardless of whether you have smoked your whole life or never touched a cigarette in your whole life. You can be in extraordinary good general health and still fear for your life from one week to another.

New technology to treat cancer, in time

Even though cancer is one of very few things that almost everyone are affected by in some way – whether by personal experience or by being close to someone that has been or is suffering cancer, it is also a disease that has been treated with old treatment methods for very long, and particularly with treatments methods with large negative impacts on the rest of the body and on the immune system. Thankfully the company RaySearch Laboratories are regularly launching new and modern technology to treat cancer. They are using tomotherapy treatment planning for planning the patients treatment, and are then regularly, almost daily, investigating the anatomical changes during the treatment with Machine learning adaptive radiation therapy. The treatment is grandly based on modern technology, and they have developed a tool called Contouring OAR for the professionals involved.
