Radiation OncologyTreatment Techniques
ERESA has, at the Consorcio Hospital General Universitario of Valencia, two linear accelerators (LINAC) that are currently considered to have the best performance in Radiation Oncology treatment. Together with the Magnetic Resonance and the CT, they make up the intelligent radiotherapy or radiotherapy of the 21st century. Both incorporate the Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy(IMRT), a system that enables to solve complicated problems of dose distribution, as well as dose escalation in the tumour tissue; minimising the damage in healthy tissue and helping in treatments of advanced-growth tumours. The main objective of this new integrated system treatment is to attack and destroy the sick cells but greatly respecting the healthy cells, with the subsequent advantages for the patient.
