Large Tumors and Metastatic Neutron-Sensitive Tumors

Neutron therapy is appropriate for:

  • Large hypoxic tumors - tumors with poor oxygenation
  • Metastatic radioresistant tumors
Patients who may benefit from neutron therapy include:
  • Patients whose tumors are too large to be effectively treated with photon therapy.
  • Patients with metastasis from a radioresistant primary tumor - for example, a lung metastasis from a primary salivary gland tumor
