Geraint Rees – Macmillan Radiographer

At our meeting on the 24th. September 2014 we welcomed Geraint Rees, who gave a talk on radiotherapy treatments in our Kent hospitals.He spoke,in particular, about external beam radiotherapy,and high dose brachytherapy.

He explained how accurate the treatment has become with the very advanced equipment now available.There are also trials ongoing involving thousands of patients to hopefully make even more advances.

His presentation involved photo’s of the equipment and treatment rooms, and also pictures of what the experts see during the treatment of patients with prostate cancer.

Many thanks to Geraint from the members present at the meeting for a most informative and in depth talk.
