Radiotherapy is used to treat different types of cancer. Radiation dose can kill cancer cells and reduce the risk of cancer recurrence. However, dose is usually also received by organs near the cancer, which can cause long-term side effects. Carolyn will show how to estimate the benefits and risks of radiotherapy for patients in the clinic.

Carolyn Taylor is an honorary consultant clinical oncologist and professor of oncology.

She is the Principal Investigator on a Cancer Research UK research program on the benefits and risks of cancer treatments. This programme combines information from high-quality datasets to estimate benefits and risks for oncologists in the clinic today.
