UAB's residency training sites include a total of six external-beam radiation therapy treatment machines, a high-dose rate (HDR) remote afterloader, and two CT-simulators. We have the most modern linear accelerators, including Varian Edge and TrueBeam systems with three-dimensional on-board imaging. 

We utilize real-time position management (RPM) respiratory tracking, Calypso, and Optical Surface Mapping System (OSMS) for real-time motion management and patient tracking during treatment delivery. High-dose rate brachytherapy treatments are performed with our Varian remote afterloader, for both interstitial and intracavitary treatments.

Each resident has a desk with dual monitors in our residents’ room adjoining our clinic space. Daily tumor boards, conferences and didactic sessions are held in a recently renovated auditorium within our department.

We are a proud partner with Varian Medical Systems, and serve as a Varian demonstration site. We also utilize our radiosurgery expertise to host our SRS/SBRT training course, a three-day conference that discusses and demonstrates stereotactic radiation (SRS) and stereotactic body radiation (SBRT) delivery with Eclipse™ and TrueBeam™.
