Specialist techniques



Staff from the RPU are involved in providing the following specialist techniques:


Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) and Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) are techniques which produce highly conformal plans and minimise the dose to normal tissues.


Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy (SABR) involves giving high doses to tumours over a small number of treatments. It has a high biological effectiveness and needs specialised imaging to maintain accuracy of delivery.


Total Body Irradiation (TBI) is used when patients are being prepared for a bone marrow transplant in connection with leukaemia & lymphoma.
