HCM CITY — The HCM City Oncology Hospital yesterday put into use two new radiation therapy machines bought at a total cost of VND32 billion (US$1.53 million) that are expected to reduce the waiting time for the massive number of patients who come for treatment.

In all, the hospital has five machines for external radiation therapy and three for internal radiation therapy, the highest in the country. — VNS
