We have state of the art equipment at our practices in Gauteng and North West, including
Since all our machines have Multi Leaf Collimators, which make shielding effortless, the time between planning and treatment is reduced dramatically. Treatment can thus begin immediately.
Every unit has a dedicated 3D Treatment Planning System with experienced treatment planning radiographers. This makes the planning to treatment stage hands-on and much more efficient. Interaction with the prescribing oncologist is also face to face. Setup difficulties and problems are easily resolved as the planning radiographers are involved with first treatment setup.
International prescribing and dose determination norms are used for all treatments and radiographers are regularly sent to local and international congresses to keep up to date with new developments. The knowledge of radiation physicists is available at all units.
IMRT or Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy is also available at all units. This is one of the latest directions in radiotherapy. Dose is administered with dynamic multi leafs, which means the leafs slide open or close throughout the treatment. This makes it possible to get a better dose distribution to the tumor and a lower dose to the surrounding organs at risk.
Brachytherapy, especially for prostate seed implants, is available at all units. Our holistic approach in every department makes the patient’s journey through the treatment process much easier since all the involved entities are close at hand.
