The TrueBeamâ„¢

The TrueBeam offers the most advanced radiotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery available. We were the first to install this new technology in the UK and have established a highly experienced team.

The TrueBeam belongs to a group of machines called linear accelerators which are used to deliver radiotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery treatment. These treatments involve targeting tumours with beams of radiation to shrink and, where possible, eradicate tumours. The TrueBeam can be used to target tumours anywhere in the body and is particularly good at treating tumours that are in difficult positions and close or attached to other organs.

The TrueBeam is the most accurate linear accelerator available. It has the ability to target tumours with high dose beams in minutes. This means that patients are receiving the most effective radiation treatment in minimal time whilst preserving the surrounding healthy tissue.

The versatility of TrueBeam enables us to provide truly flexible, individually tailored treatment for each patient, enhanced by high quality imaging and real time tracking of the tumour. This means that the team can maintain accuracy when targeting tumours that move, including those that shrink or shift during treatment.

Designed with your comfort in mind the TrueBeam moves around the patient, maintaining accuracy without moving you into awkward positions. The addition of the 6 degrees of freedom couch allows for precise corrections in patient positioning during treatment. There is also a series of cameras that enables the radiotherapy team to closely monitor you throughout each treatment session, giving you greater peace of mind.
