radiation oncologyLinear accelerator
The Clinica Universidad de Navarra has acquired the most advanced linear accelerator for external radiation therapy.
This accelerator is the first Elekta Versa HD model to go into service in Spain.
The main advantages of the new equipment include a treatment speed up to 10 times higher than that of any conventional accelerator, as well as a reduced number of sessions.
Additionally, the Clínica has 3 linear accelerators for radiation therapy, specifically, two Siemens Mevatron Primus and one Siemens Oncor.
A linear accelerator (LINAC) is a large device that remotely administers high-energy X-rays to the location of the patient’s tumour.
The teams model the radiation field through a multi-layer system that modulates the radiation beam, thereby reducing the radiation to healthy organs and increasing it to the affected tissue.
