LOCATION AND DEPARTMENT FACILITIES

Radiation Oncolgy Department is located on the basement floor at the Oncology building of Süleyman Demirel University Medical Faculty Hospital. Department is consist of polyclinics, treatment planning unit and treatment devices (Linear Accelerators).
 
The purchase of two linear accelerators (LINAC), one CT Simulator and Treatment Planning System, is completed in the year of 2010, which are convenient to latest technological applications in radiation therapy. The radiotherapy devices were established in Süleyman Demirel University Medical Faculty Radiation Oncology Department, on September 2011. 900 patients are treated from this date forward.
 
In our clinic, the radiotherapy applications about lung, breast, head and neck, prostate, skin, brain, gastrointestinal system, lymphoma and gynecological cancers, are performing. Our department is servicing for Isparta and its counties, and patients from nearby cities like Burdur and Afyon.
 
In radiation oncology department, LINACs are capable of delivering 3 – dimensional conformal radiotherapy, as well as intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). With the help of 3 – dimensional conformal radiotherapy, the harm to the normal tissues is minimized as soon as possible, and high dose treatment can apply to tumor tissues. Also, the images, which are transfered from PET-BT imaging device that existing in our hospital, are using in RT planning. By this way, tumor tissue is well distinguished and surrounding normal tissues can protect better.
