  • In addition to standard methods of radiation therapy (CT-planned 3D-CRT), several certified clinics apply advanced methods - 4D-CT and/or PET/CT simulation, IMRT/VMAT, IGRT, motion management, proton therapy.
Getting to know lung cancer staging and treatment

In addition, at pre- and postoperative period, combined protocols with radiation and chemotherapy are used. Stereotactic radiosurgery is applied with the Cyberknife system. Breath Gating System is used during the radiation of chest. This is a "guidance system" that taking respiratory movements of the chest into account making this radiation therapy more precise. The device sends a beam on affected area at a particular phase of breathing.
