The researchers carried out microbeam measurements at the ESRF’s ID17 Biomedical Beamline. (Courtesy: P.JAYET/ESRF) Microbeam radiation therapy (MRT) is an emerging preclinical modality that could one day become a preferred treatment for inoperable brain tumours, due to the reduced impact of microbeams on healthy surrounding tissues. However, the effectiveness of the treatment could be compromised
