BSH. A substance used in a type of radiation therapy called boron neutron capture therapy. BSH is injected into a vein, and becomes concentrated in tumor cells. The patient then receives radiation treatment with atomic particles called neutrons. The neutrons react with the boron in BSH, producing radioactive particles that kill the tumor cells without harming normal cells.
