£4.6m is being invested in new specialist cancer treatment technology by the Welsh Government.
The funding will go towards a 'more targeted form' of radiotherapy at the Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff, by minimising damage to surrounding tissues.
This will initially be used on lung cancer patients.
Velindre says the aim is to 'improve patient outcomes' by offering the treatment known as Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy to some patients whose lung lesions are currently inoperable, and who otherwise would be offered palliative care.
