Doctors in Liverpool have unveiled a new cancer scanner that removes the need for invasive brain surgery.
 
The Novalis TX uses a system similar to a car’s satellite navigation, to locate and blast the tumour with a single very high radiotherapy dose. 
 
The machine, costing 3,000 euros, can locate and treat some cancers in just 15 minutes.
