Your patients need a little space.

Prostate cancer radiation therapy saves lives. But it can also complicate them.

The physical and emotional impact of RT complications can be significant.

A little can go a long way.

Just a small space has the potential for a major impact on patients’ QoL by significantly lowering rectum toxicity.
