Our institutes are equipped with the very latest generation of linear accelerators. In addition to conventional radiotherapy, this high-tech device can also be used to perform stereotactic radiotherapy with exceptional accuracy (deviation of less than one millimetre), so that tumours close to critical areas can be very precisely treated. Thanks to this incredible precision, higher single doses of radiation can be administered, which also reduces the total number of treatments required. The provision of high doses has also reduced the treatment time from one hour to between 10 and 20 minutes.
The equipment registers movement caused by the patient breathing and with respiratory gating, allows the radiation to be applied only during defined phases of breathing so that damage to healthy tissue is reduced.
