St Luke’s Cancer Centre is focused on providing excellent patient pathways and patient-centred care. We strive to continuously evolve to reflect the technical advances within Radiotherapy. We are one of the first UK departments to have a Varian ETHOS which enable us to deliver adaptive Radiotherapy. This complements our six Varian TrueBeams and 3 CT Scanners across the two sites. We use MR imaging in treatment planning and further development of PET/CT is underway.
