To effectively cover patient needs in Thessaly and the greater area, IASO Thessaly has set up a Radiation Oncology Center (ROC). The Trilogy linear accelerator, Varian, USA, is a technological jewel offered by science to the global market, and has the capability of upgrading to correspond to future technological advances.
Treatment planning is carried out with the assistance of the ultra-modern CT Simulator, Siemens, which is capable of detecting the exact radiation site, ensuring trustworthy radiation beam entrance and monitoring treatment progress.
Now, the region of Thessaly has access to modern radiation techniques as these are applied in all reputable ROCs abroad, such as:
- 3D Conformal Radiation Therapy
- Intensity-modulated Radiation Therapy - IMRT
- Image-guided radiation therapy - IGRT
- Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy – VMAT
The scientific team is flanked by top medical radiation oncologists with many years of experience and training in advanced technology and machinery, specialized technologists, experienced nurses and well-informed administrative staff.
The new Radiation Oncology Center at IASO Thessaly provides the possibility of immediate radiotherapy with no waiting lists and undue delays, serving the increased needs of the local population.
