Oxygen decelerates many cancer tumours when combined with radiation therapy

A multidisciplinary team at UT Southwestern Medical Center has found that measuring the oxygenation of tumours can be a valuable tool in guiding radiation therapy, opening the door for personalized therapies that keep tumours in check with oxygen enhancement.
In research examining tissue oxygenation levels and predicting radiation response, UT Southwestern scientists led by Dr. Ralph Mason reported in the June 27 online issue of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine that countering hypoxic and aggressive tumours with an
