Relocatable radiotherapy – take a tour
Oncology Systems Limited partnered with a UK engineering company, to develop the UK and Europe’s first relocatable radiotherapy treatment suite.
A relocatable radiotherapy treatment suite designed to house a TomoTherapy machine has been in operation in the US since 2009, delivering state of the art cancer care across the country. In order to provide this radiotherapy treatment option to patients in the UK and Europe, a new solution was developed that met local transport law requirements and provides the most efficient solution for public and private sector hospitals.
The OSL Pioneer treatment suite is housed in a custom-built vehicle. At site, the sides of the suite move out, making the unit spacious and comfortable. The suite is installed on a pre-built concrete pad with access to utilities. An additional radiation shield is then constructed to meet local requirements. Finally an exterior façade can be assembled to create an attractive environment for patients.
