Smart Bombs or Smart Drugs.

 Laser guided targeting, 4D topography, Smart targeting cabilities... This is WAR! And it's being fought  Here & Now, Not STAR WARS... but  CANCER WARS.

It seems to have taken a few short years for the Strategic Defensive Intiative (or Star Wars) to blunder and crash  into obscurity, but the the promise of the technology lives on - like the rebel alliance. Small pockets of under-funded, under-staffed and under-equipped rebel thinkers, bending the powers of their combined thoughts to one task - a laser and drug guided radiation system that ZAPS the cancer cells and leaves the healthy tissue undamaged. May the force (In this case, NIH dollars) be with them!

I like to think of radiation oncologists as Yodas, wise men and women with a shaky grip on language and a super-steady, very DEADLY grip on the laser beam. Destroy this menace I will!


The battle rages on all around us...
