The Clinic for Radiotherapy and Radiation Oncology and the medical centre provide radiotherapy services with highly qualified staff and high-performance devices for dose planning and radiation therapy to about 1,800 patients per year in the Stuttgart region. The clinic has four modern linear accelerators, a computer-controlled reload device for contact radiation (HDR-afterloading) and a device for permanent interstitial implantation of radioactive seeds. Modern computer and control programmes allow accurate scheduling and documentation of radiotherapy in a network system.
The clinic covers the entire spectrum of radio-oncological disease patterns. Of particular importance is the interdisciplinary integration of radiation oncology in oncological multimodal therapy concepts. Here, we also offer fractionated total body irradiation in bone marrow transplantation. We have performed intraoperative radiation therapy of tumour embedding in the context of a previous boost for patients who have had breast-conserving mamma carcinoma surgery since the middle of 2011.
