Treatment planning

Prior to the treatment commencement, a doctor defines its scope for every patient. During the planning, a technician marks on the patient’s skin with markers or tattoos the coordinate system and performs localisation pictures.

The points of radiation entry are also drawn on individual masks, in which case there are no visible marks on the skin. A doctor marks the areas to be radiated on the CT scans. The planning takes place in the Medical Physics Institute, where a physicist prepares an individual treatment plan for each patient. The plan always takes the protection of healthy organs into consideration, which do not require any treatment. The planning process is complicated and may last a few days. A great part of the treatment planning is done without the physical presence of a patient on the basis of the X-ray pictures and diagnostic tests (CT, MR, PET/CT).

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.
