The Alpha DaRT Cancer Treatment
Alpha particles are known to be highly destructive to cancerous cells. However, the short range of Alpha particles in tissue had made them rare candidates for treating solid tumors. Alpha DaRT (Diffusing Alpha-emitters Radiation Therapy) enables the use of Alpha radiation for treating solid tumors in a highly potent and conformal mode.
