A Combination Cancer Therapy
Real-Time Cellular-Guided Radiation Therapy
Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) is a non-invasive, combination radiation therapy, which selectively destroys cancer cells while sparing healthy tissue. BNCT has been used to treat cancers that are inoperable, invasive, radioresistant or spread outside the primary tumor site in as little as a single treatment session.
Benefits of BNCT
