Understanding our radiotherapy treatment

Radiotherapy

One of radiotherapy's greatest challenges is to minimise damage to normal cells, while delivering an adequate and accurate dose to the tumour so that it is destroyed. GenesisCare utilises the latest advancements in linac technology, medical imaging and dosimetry to deliver radiotherapy with pinpoint accuracy.

GenesisCare uses CT planning, V-Sim and TPS (virtual simulation and treatment planning systems) to construct easily reproducible plans to deliver the most effective dose possible to different parts of the tumour and surrounding tissue, conforming to any possible shape, however irregular.

Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) and Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) are used together to deliver the designed dose whilst continuously monitoring the position of the actual cancer within the delivered beams.

All patients with cancer in their left breast are offered spirometry-monitored Deep Inspiration Breath-Hold (DIBH) radiotherapy.

Working with our partners, GenesisCare offers radiotherapy as part of a full private cancer service, all under one roof, in a contemporary and caring environment.
