Casa di Cura Bonvicini, Bolzano
The Radiation Oncology Department of the Public Hospital Bolzano in cooperation with the University Clinic in Innsbruck was founded on 1. March 2004.
The Radiation Therapy Department currently located at the Casa di Cura Bonvicini is focused on patients from the Bolzano region.
The clinic is equipped with 3 Linear Accelerators. The newest Elekta Synergy Linear Accelerator is equipped with the 160 leaf Agility collimator and a cone-beam CT.
In September 2015 the pre-clinical IQM prototype was installed at the Elekta Synergy Linear Accelerator. “We are in the process of clinically implementing volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT)” stated Dr. Markus Haller, Head of the Medical Physics Group “and we hope that IQM will allow us to verify the accurate delivery of this new treatment technique automatically and without creating additional workload.” The IQM System was already used to verify a number of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) treatment techniques during the installation and training. “New treatment techniques are becoming more and more complex” stated Dr. Martin Maffei, Radiation Oncologist and added “the clinical workload is increasing, multiple tasks are addressed at the same time. Utilizing IQM for real-time verification during the patient treatment will allow us to fully focus our attention on the optimal treatment of our patients.”
