Dr. Dr. Gerald H. Sokol's Expert Contributions
  • How can I prevent eye damage during radiation therapy for treating nose cancer?

    The use of localized electrons even close to the eyes is unlikely to cause eye damage as the depth and diameter of the applied field is limited by the physical nature of electrons (i.e., they have very limited depth of penetration depending on energy). We treat eyelids, eyes themselves and tumors around eyes routinely. Treating those areas is routine for well trained radiation oncologists. Additionally, we can just block the eyes appropriately if necessary - treating a nose is routine and extremely safe when treated by experienced doctors with superficial minimally invasive electrons.
