  2. An article posted on the ABC news site (12 May 15) has revealed a Gamma Knife Radiation Treatment System is being installed at the PA Hospital. While the article focuses on it's capability to more safely treat brain cancers, it does note the following-"The machine can also be used on benign and cancerous tumours in other parts of the body" Here is the link - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-05-12/radiation-machine-will-turn-brain-surgery-on-its-head-oncologist/6463294 EDIT-(2hrs later) Unfortunately, from further research It appears that this machine (as pictured) is not capable of full body treatment, as it is not a full tunnel through the back, so may not be much use for other parts of the body. The Hospital press release does not mention 'other parts' http://www.health.qld.gov.au/metrosouth/news/150512-pah-gamma-knife.asp Geoff.
