New treatment for skin cancer12th March 2010
Ninewells Hospital in Dundee in Scotland has begun to use a new device which aims to ensure treating skin cancer is quicker and less painful.
The Ambulight PDT device sends out light as part of a plaster which is fixed to the skin and means the patient does not have to remain in hospital to receive the treatment. James Ferguson, a professor of dermatology at Ninewells, explained: "This new device can be taken away home with the patients. It is escaping from the hospital environment, making for a gentler approach to skin cancer treatment."
