Technology : Treatment Planning and Delivery : Linear Accelerators

UAB strives to remain on the technological vanguard of our field, and some of the most essential technologies are our linear accelerators. We currently use three linear accelerators at our core facility and two at our The Kirklin Clinic at Acton Road location. Our linear accelerator arsenal includes four Varian Medical Systems Clinac units and one TomoTherapy unit.

Linear accelerators perform External Beam Radiotherapy treatments and some units perform Stereotactic Radiosurgery procedures as well. IGRT, IMRT, 3D CRT, Superficial, TBI, TSI, and SBRT radiotherapies are all delivered from these linear accelerators.
