The department has a newly installed Varian ETHOS treatment machine which went clinical in August 2020 (read about the first patient treated here).
A number of existing research projects are to be conducted to investigate the use of the system for daily online adaptive radiotherapy.
The system includes AI based auto-contouring, automated plan adaption and integrated QA solutions which allow a fully adaptive treatment to be completed within 15 minutes.
Below are a few pictures following install showing some of the team involved in the initial commissioning process.
Further details of the research ongoing will be updated here as it progresses.
