Radiotherapy services

The London Clinic radiotherapy department uses the world’s most up-to-date technology to provide the most advanced treatments possible for our patients.

Clinical Radiotherapy staff use two Varian linear accelerators that deliver a wide range of external beam radiotherapy.  All treatments are given using Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) and treatments such as Intensity Modulated and Volumetric Arc Therapy (IMRT and VMAT or RapidArc) are standard for many patients.

We are also able to successful treat a wide range of tumours using respiratory gating.  Deep inspiration breath hold (DIBH) is the technique we use for left side breast cancer.  The technique of end expiration breath hold (EEBH) is used for tumours in the abdomen and thorax including pancreas, lung and oesophageal cancer.  The London Clinic is the only hospital in the UK to use the Gated RapidArc technology.

Our CyberKnife is at the heart of our stereotactic program.  This technology allows Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) to very small tumours or those that have been found to be inoperable. 

Our neurosurgeons are experienced in the use of this technology for treatments of both benign and malignant tumours in the brain, and our Clinical Oncologists use this technology for areas throughout the body to provide a comprehensive Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy (SABR) programme.
