New surface-guided radiation equipment to deliver more targeted treatment

More than 700 guests at the 25th annual Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant Gala Dinner, along with a $100,000 USD match from Lions Clubs International, raised $460,000 to bring surface-guided radiation equipment to BC Cancer – Vancouver to support patients who require precision radiation.

This state-of-the-art equipment will help decrease treatment set-up time, enhance delivery precision, and is particularly beneficial for pediatric and breast cancer patients.

“We are thrilled to know surface-guided radiation equipment is on its way, which will allow clinicians to deliver more targeted treatment, improve patient comfort and reduce the time it takes for patients to undergo treatment,” said Dr. Cheryl Duzenli, medical physics leader, BC Cancer.
