Radiation therapy, along with surgery and chemotherapy, are the three basic therapy options for the treatment of malignant dieseases. During the last two decades, there have been tremendous technological advances in radiotherapy equipment and techniques (3D Dosimetry, Conformal Radiotherapy, Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy, Image Guided Radiotherapy, Stereotactic Radiosurgery, Volumetric Arc Therapy) all aiming in delivering the highest amount of radiation dose to the malignant target volume, whilst sparing the nearby healthy tissues.
Our Radiation Therapy group is housed in the Radiation Oncology Department of our Medical School, housed at the AHEPA University Hospital. The group supports the everyday clinical practice of the Radiation Oncology Department, which is equipped with two Linear Accelerators, one CT simulator and two advanced Treatment Planning Systems, working in very close co-operation with the Department’s radiation oncologists.
At the same time, the group is pursuing research activities, in the field of quality assurance of treatment planning software and treatment verification, especially in the latest complicated treatments.
