A linear accelerator (LINAC) is a particle accelerator used to accelerate electrically charged particles. During this process, a predetermined dose of energy is released. Linear accelerators with electron beams that generate X-ray radiation are used for the radiotherapy of cancer tumours.
Our linear accelerators feature a built-in positioning control system and enable radiotherapy to be carried out with millimetre precision. Healthy tissue is protected as much as possible and harmful side effects can be reduced to a minimum. The linear accelerator is also equipped with additional functions: The breathing-dependant control system takes into consideration the movement of the tumour during respiratory movements and the intensity-modulated radiotherapy technology allows the individual fields of radiation to be adapted in accordance with the volume of the tumour.
