Radiotherapy

Cancer Centre London provides a modern and advanced radiotherapy service for the treatment of all common cancers. We provide a high-quality, personalised service and carry no waiting lists for patients needing radiotherapy treatment.

Our dedicated radiotherapy team (consisting of Consultant Clinical Oncologists, Radiographers, Clinical Scientists and other healthcare professionals) provide a personalised and high-quality service, ensuring that the highest standards of patient care are maintained throughout the course of a patient’s treatment.

Pioneering treatments at CCL: Eleka Versa HD linear accelerator

Cancer Centre London was the first private hospital to provide advanced radiotherapy treatment using this an Eleka Versa HS linear accelerator.

The Versa HD linear accelerator offers advanced radiotherapy techniques that enables high-precision treatment in managing a range of cancers in the head and neck, lung, breast and prostate. It has the ability to continually reshape the radiation beam to the fine contours of the tumour so a higher dose of radiotherapy can be delivered.

In addition, the Versa HD uses advanced automated software to treat left-sided breast cancer and lung cancers. The machine was designed in collaboration with clinicians, so it is finely-tuned to the patient’s needs.

Advanced technology

The planning of a patient’s treatment involves creating a three-dimensional representation of the area to be treated using a CT scanner (Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET), if indicated) and advanced virtual simulation software. These various imaging modalities allow us to target cancers with radiotherapy treatment with far greater accuracy and improved effectiveness.

Cancer Centre London’s modern and high quality facilities enable the provision of both 3D Conformal Radiation Therapy (3DCRT), Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and IGRT (Image Guided Radiotherapy), VMAT (Volumetric Arc Radiotherapy), SRT (Stereotactic Radiotherapy), FFF (Flattening Filter Free), FFF-VMAT, SABR (Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy), and Gated Radiotherapy.

Our IGRT facilities allow soft tissue matching, giving us great confidence in ensuring that the target tumour volume is covered by the treatment beam, while sparing normal surrounding tissues. All Radiotherapy patients have In-Vivo Dosimetry where the dose delivered is measured during treatment delivery.
