Episode 8: ”A Small Radiation Tile is Changing the Game in Brain Tumor Therapy” – with guests Matthew Likens and Shannan Achens

Being diagnosed with brain cancer is scary. It’s overwhelming. It’s diving into a future of unknowns. However, there are many in the scientific and neuroscience community that are working to help patients beat the odds, and to break that “blood brain barrier” for treatment success. One of those in our communities is GT Medical Technologies (GT Med Tech). President and CEO, Matthew Likens talks about the game changing product Gamma Tile, what it is, how it works, and why every hospital neurosurgeon should know about it.

We also hear from patient Shannan Achens, who was diagnosed with brain cancer 16 years ago! She gives us a glimpse into her treatments before Gamma Tile and after use of Gamma Tile.

Plus I share a Thanksgiving story about a gift my late husband left me from the beyond. These are stories you won’t want to miss!
