Our worldwide experience means that we are always at the forefront of introducing the very latest technology and treatments at all our hospitals. Here are just three examples currently in use.
Perfexion™ Gamma Knife® offers increased patient comfort and more accurate dose planning with less risk of damage to adjoining healthy areas.
HCA also offers RapidArc® technologyto increase the speed and precision of radiotherapy treatment for cancer patients which minimises time on the treatment couch and effects of tumour motion during treatment.
In addition, we have invested £3 million in the UK’s first TrueBeam STx linear accelerator at UCH and available for both NHS and private patients. It is the world’s most advanced linear accelerator and delivers treatment up to eight times faster than other linear accelerators. It also helps to provide cancer patients with better quality of life post treatment.
