RapidArc Linear Accelerator

RapidArc technology is the global benchmark for radiotherapy treatments . This technique ensures that treatments are faster and easier than those made with techniques that were being used until now as the traditional intensity-modulated (IMRT ) or 3D conformal radiotherapy technique .

The technique is based on the accelerator that emits a series of arch-shaped radiation that converge on the tumor.

The benefits of treatments with our advanced equipment are:

  • The treatment time is reduced since each session can last around three minutes.
  • Being shorter sessions , there is less natural motion of organs during irradiation.
  • The biological damage to tumor cells is higher , increasing the efficiency of the treatment , as it is more accurate to accelerate the cure for cancer.
  • Healthy tissue harmful side effects are reduced , making that the treatment is better tolerated by the patient. It could in some cases increase the dose to the tumor , achieving greater tumor control or even realizing concomitant with other treatments to improve survival .Together, it improves the patients quality of life .
  • A guided image on board allows to verify the position of the area to be irradiated by high-resolution imaging and low dose , allowing various acquisition modalities , such as 2D X-ray , fluoroscopy or computed tomography (CT ) Cone Beam 3D ( ConeBeamCT ) . This ensures the accuracy of treatment, to enable patient positioning correction .
