End Game was excited to read of a clever new cancer intervention being pioneered by University Hospital Birmingham.

It’s called “CyberKnife”, but less scary than that sounds because it is actually a tiny beam of radiotherapy, and not a grudge-bearing robot with a blade.

According to the blurb, “it uses technology similar to that used in cruise missiles to target tumours”. Though hopefully incurring less “collateral damage” than the average “surgical strike”.
