The Radiotherapy department at the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center is considered to be at the forefront of global medical science. It is the first medical care institution outside of the US and Canada to have gained a RTOG membership (Radiotherapy Oncology Group) – one of the world leaders in radiotherapy research. The department is equipped with the latest radiation technology, used to treat not only adults but also pediatrics and adolescents. Our specialists use cutting-edge therapies and implement state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment techniques.

Radiotherapy department - Ichilov

The Radiotherapy department at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center is a modern, up-to-date facility. It features state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge technologies which allow us to save precious time – and we know that the time factor often plays a crucial role in fighting oncological diseases. The use of the latest scientific and technical innovations not only provides a significant increase in the radiation therapy precision, but also minimizes the time of exposure (and consequently the side effects). Our facility is equipped with the world’s best Novalis TrueBeam STХ linear accelerators by Varian Medical System, featuring the most sophisticated data processing system. This allows us to deliver highly precise, top quality treatment and retain healthy tissues and organs.

The use of high-speed and accuracy accelerators enables us to minimize the duration of treatment sessions and healthy tissue exposure. Figures speak for themselves: in the past, a session could last up to 45 minutes and now the average time is only 10 minutes.

Advanced treatment planning

Treatment planning at the Radiology Institute is based on highly accurate data collection. The institute offers the latest CT-simulator. A high-speed multi-slice scanner with excellent imaging enables us to establish the tumor’s exact location and the extent of its involvement with nearby organs and tissues. In addition, our state-of-the-art linear accelerator has an improved 3D visualization system, which allows us to simulate the trajectory of each individual beam and provide high precision radiotherapy.

One of the most important features of our state-of-the-art linear accelerator is its computerized data processing system, calculating the distribution of the radiation dose in the tissue of the patient’s body using Monte Carlo code. The code’s original application was in NASA projects and in nuclear reactors. Today, the code is also used in cancer therapies when performing high precision calculations within the shortest timeframe.

Individual treatment & reduced side effects

In addition to the carefully selected treatment planning systems, which result in a highly accurate radiation therapy, our institute also uses the Varian/BrainLab monitoring and control system for real-time treatment monitoring. This system guarantees that each patient receives therapy based on their individual treatment pattern prescribed by physicians and radiologists.

Our institute was the first in Israel to have mastered the technique of respiratory movement monitoring. This technique is based on the use of two systems:  the respiratory synchronization system and the breath-holding system. Synchronization with the patient’s breathing results in the most precise radiation beams targeting the specific areas of the tumor, while factoring-in tumor location changes caused by respiratory movements. Such precision allows us to minimize the areas exposed to radiation and significantly reduce side effects.
