In parallel with development of the proton beam cancer treatment system, a component of the "Advanced Radiation Therapy Project Real-time Tumor-tracking with Molecular Imaging Technique," Kyoto University Professor Masahiro Hiraoka, who collaborated in the proposal for this national project, is developing a tracking-image X-ray therapy
system that tracks and irradiates tumors, as part of his activities in the X-ray therapy
The X-ray therapy
, conducted on a small number of rats whose spinal cords were partially or completely severed, has generated both interest and skepticism among scientists.
And women with cancer are sometimes given oestrogen-supressing drugs, chemotherapy and X-ray therapy
that will cause irritation and pain.
