NCRI 2018 | Role of intra-operative electron radiotherapy in abdominopelvic malignancies

Alex Mirnezami

In this interview, Alex Mirnezami, BM, PhD, from the University of Southampton, Southampton, UK, discusses the difficulties in the removal of abdominopelvic malignancies, before introducing intraoperative electron radiotherapy (IOERT) as an exciting approach. Prof. Mirnezami stresses the need for further trials to address the current lack of high quality data, and then further explores the possibility of using IOERT as the potential replacement for external beam radiotherapy (EBRT); improving current practices. Prof. Mirnezami reveals the challenges, next-steps, and exciting new developments in the implementation of IOERT. This video was recorded at the 2018 National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Cancer Conference, held in Glasgow, UK.
