Radioactive chip kills cancer cells

A radioactive chip has been found to be effective in treating inoperable solid cancers such as liver cancer. End stage liver cancer usually means death within 6 to 12 months but the chip can extend this long enough for the patient to receive a transplant. The chip works by killing malignant cells close to the chip.
