Cyber surgery to 'revolutionise' cancer treatment

A £3m radiotherapy system will "revolutionise" cancer treatment for patients in the North East and Cumbria, doctors say.

The cyber surgery system, will "dramatically" improve the accuracy of radiotherapy treatment and will be used to treat tumours which are currently inoperable.

It is expected to be fully operational at the Freeman Hospital's Northern Centre for Cancer Care in Newcastle by autumn 2013.
