Treatment planning

The procedures of the ionizing energy radiation take place within the therapeutic unit designed particularly for this purpose, the co-called linear accelerator or the brachytherapy unit which are located in the bunker.

The therapeutic units are operated by radiotherapy technicians trained to do so. The treatment lasts between one day and a dozen of weeks, depending on the neoplastic problem and the planned therapeutic dose. However, the time of the radiation itself is short, and lasts a few or a dozen minutes. During the procedure, a patient should sit or lie motionless in the same position at each stage of the treatment in order to ensure the radiation gets precisely to the required area. There is no need to hold your breath – you should breathe calmly and normally. During radiation in the therapeutic bunker the patient remains alone, however, it should be remembered that the patient is being monitored by cameras and the personnel may communicate with the patient via the intercom. The radiotherapy units may rotate during the procedure and therefore may make various sounds. The units work properly; they are safe and their proper functioning is guaranteed. However, if a patient experiences any disturbance during the procedure, ailments or discomforts, it should be reported to the radiotherapist immediately. The ionizing radiation is invisible and inaudible. After radiation, the body of the patient is not radioactive and the patient is not dangerous for his/her relatives or children.
