Tens of thousands of breast cancer sufferers could soon be receiving an "innovative" type of radiotherapy treatment, it has emerged.
The National Institute for Health and Care excellence (Nice) gave intrabeam radiotherapy the seal of approval for use on the NHS.
The treatment involves administering a single dose of radiotherapy to patients during surgery.
A single dose of radiotherapy could be "more convenient" for patients, Nice said.
Intrabeam radiotherapy will be available to patients in the early stages of breast cancer.
