Description of Medical Service

Robotic image-guided stereotactic precise beam radiotherapy is a form of image guided radiation therapy (IGRT), which aims to better target and provide accurate delivery of external beam radiotherapy (EBRT)* to a tumour site – thereby reducing radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. It utilises information collected from x-rays, computerised tomography, ultrasound or similar imaging technologies as part of the planning and delivery of a course of EBRT.

* EBRT is a cancer treatment that delivers high-energy radiation to tumor sites with the primary goal is stopping the division of tumor cells.
