The Radiotherapy center of Erfan Niayesh Hospital is located in a pleasant and peaceful environment on (B4) floor of Erfan Niayesh Hospital.
This center using the most advanced up-to-date radiotherapy machines, employs VMAT as the latest treatment method for treatment of cancers of many body organs such as the prostate, head and neck, breast, gastrointestinal tract, etc; in adition to the advanced techniques such as IMRT, 3DCRT, and IGRT.
The Radiotherapy Center of Erfan Niayesh Hospital is the first center equipped with modern Quantitative Cone-beam CT (CBCT) imaging, the use of which facilitates online control of tumor regions and healthy vital tissues at any stage of the treatment which greatly increases the accuracy of the treatment.
The Radiotherapy Center of Erfan Niayesh Hospital uses the best equipment and employs experienced skillful manpower as basic principles for increased effectiveness of treatment methods.
1) Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT)
2) 3 Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3DCRT)
3) Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
Scientific and technological advances have led to the introduction of Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT), which is the most effective and the latest technology for cancer treatment, using one or more image-guided radiation arcs. This method is also known as the IGRT (Image - Guided Radiation Therapy).
Elekta Company, the innovator company that provides new solutions for oncology and cancer treatment, using the seventh generation of digital technology in medical accelerators, has introduced a complete treatment system for cancer patients while defining a new precision, speed, and treatment control, which has made simultaneous imaging and treatment possible.
The Radiation Oncology Center of Erfan Niayesh Hospital, using this highly advanced system for the First time in Iran, treats the patient with the widest spectrum of radiation orientations in the shortest possible time and with the highest accuracy.
Unlike traditional two dimensional therapies, the Three Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3DCRT) is a cancer treatment approach in which advanced computer and softwares are used for accurate targeting of the tumor. In fact, 3DCRT treatment is a complex process that starts with the creation of a collection of three-dimensional data of the tumor and healthy tissues. Then, the collection is used to create complex 3D computer images and design complex maps to beam the beam into a tumor and preserve healthy tissue around it.
