Edmonton donor supports develoment of groundbreaking radiation treatment

 

When I inteviewed Southpark Motors former owner Hugh Mccoll for this story on donors, I not only discovered this couple’s lifetime of generosity to our community, I discovered what medical physicists at Edmonton’s Cross Cancer Institute were up to. They’re developing a prototype of the world’s first hybrid 3D-MRI machine that can capture an image of a cancerous tumour and treat it with radiation at the same time. For future cancer patients, that could mean fewer treatments and potentially fewer side effects.
