Our mission is to see a world where people in every country can have access to standard of care radiation therapy, regardless of income.
Our mission is to help people in developing countries improve radiation cancer treatment with low cost solutions. We enable resource-limited cancer clinics reduce treatment toxicity, similar to modern technologies, at 5-10% of the cost.
PHYSICS WORLD PODCAST
EmpowerRT was interviewed for the Physics World podcast! We talked about our motivation to start EmpowerRT, our approach to training in a partner clinic’s home setting so that we can directly cater our solution to their specific clinical needs, and our recent progress and future initiatives. We loved getting to discuss EmpowerRT in our own words with Dr. Tami Freeman and share the work that we care so much about. Give the podcast a listen!
