Radiation therapy / radio oncology is an important component in the interdisciplinary treatment of
many tumor diseases and also an important therapeutic option in the treatment of benign diseases.

The treatments in our clinic always take into account the current scientific knowledge and guidelines in
the fields of medicine and medical physics. In our clinic, we can use and offer all modern radiotherapy
and radio-oncology methods such as IMRT, VMAT, IGRT, respiratory gating and stereotactic head and
trunk treatments on two coordinated linear accelerators. In addition, a conventional orthovolt device is
available for a variety of applications in the treatment spectrum of benign diseases.

Irradiation planning is done in a PET-CT, which allows us to integrate a PET-CT examination into the
direct planning process in addition to the usual conventional planning CT for special questions.

The additional integration of medical or surgical therapies is closely coordinated with the treating
colleagues, among others in regular interdisciplinary tumor boards.

The application of different methods of radiation therapy always takes into account the individual
situation of the patient. The aim of our treatments is always the optimization of the chances of recovery
while at the same time gentle implementation of the treatment. In order to do justice to the patients
beyond the technical aspects of a treatment, close, sensitive and considerate treatment and support is
another essential part of our actions.

At the center of our treatments is always the individual patient.

Treatments: Nuclear Medicine Therapies

The most common treatment method in nuclear medicine is the radio-iodine therapy, which has proven
to be very effective method for very different thyroid disorders.

In addition, there are also targeted nuclear medicine therapies for tumor diseases and inflammatory
joint diseases in which specific radioisotopes or radiolabeled antibodies are used.

Treatments: Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology (IVR) involves a variety of procedures for the treatment of a wide variety of
diseases.

A key advantage of interventional radiology is the low burden on the patient. Usually a local anesthesia
is sufficient. The balloon dilatation is e.g. one of the standard methods to dilate vasoconstriction
(“intermittent claudication”). Here, a small balloon is introduced into a blood vessel and then inflated
shortly. The bottleneck of the vessel can be eliminated thereby.

In addition, we offer state-of-the-art methods, e.g. for the treatment of liver cancer or metastases or for
the desquamation of so-called fibroids of the uterus.

We have the highest level of competence in the field of interventional radiology: Since 2010 we have
been an official training center according to the guidelines of the German Association for Interventional
Radiology (DEGIR) and since 2012 part of the interdisciplinary, certified vascular center Stade (after DGG
and DEGIR).
