The New York Post reports Harrison checked out of Staten Island University Hospital on Sunday -- accompanied by his wife and three bodyguards.
A doctor there reportedly offers a special kind of radiation treatment. It attacks large and advanced tumors while leaving surrounding tissue intact.
The doctor says his technique has a 90 percent success rate. But he won't say whether he's treating Harrison.
The youngest Beatle -- he's 58 -- was diagnosed with lung cancer and a brain tumor earlier this year. [Close-ID] [5pm] SUPER=x4035; fax/copyright [SUPER=x4034;email/copyright]
