Congratulations to the medical, physics, dosimetry, tech, radiography and nursing teams at the Oncology department at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness on becoming the first Cancer Centre to offer tattoo-less radiotherapy for breast cancer patients in the NHS.

Reducing the stigmata of radiotherapy reduces the stigma of radiotherapy. Hopefully these combinations of surface-guided and image-guided setup techniques can be applied to other tumour types so more patients can benefit in the future.
