Rapid Arc

Rapid Arc has the ability to deliver a highly precise treatment in a single rotation of the machine around the patient (about 2 minutes). This is achieved by enabling small beams with varying intensity to be aimed at the tumour from multiple angles. Rapid arc allows for a high dose to be delivered to the tumour whilst minimising dose to surround healthy tissue.

At present, our department is working towards the implementation of this new technology.
