What benefits the clinic receives from medical physicists?

Medical physicists are directly involved in the selection of patient's diagnostics and treatment tactics, they are involved in clinical activity during performing of complicated diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Medical physicists ensure quality of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures - they constantly provide control of quality of the equipment and optimize procedures for reducing of the amount of exposure. They perform the calculation of the prescribed dose and realization planning for each patient individually during the radiotherapy process.

Installed technology:

Modulated intensity electrons radiotherapy using the individual bolus, printed using 3D printer, was firstly applied in the clinic in 2016. Critical organs and healthy tissues close to the tumor are protected taking advantage of the unique properties of the formation of electron doses.

Phantom of inspection of MRI equipment quality was designed and printed with 3D printer. Cooperation is conducted with Oslo University Hospital. The patent application was submitted.

Radiotherapy of cancer patients is done quickly and accurately, while applying the latest technologies (CBCT, VMAT) and software (Smart Adapt, EPIQA) Using functional information, received from SPECT and PET, active tumor focuses are specified and sparing radiation therapy is performed.
