MedEuropa currently operates radiation therapy centers in 4 Romanian cities (visit www.medeuropa.ro for more information). The MedEuropa cancer center in the capital, Bucharest, is equipped with 3 state-of-the-art Elekta linear accelerators. These linear accelerators deliver every modern treatment technique to over 180 cancer patients each day, from Stereotactic treatment techniques applying 6FFF and 10FFF energies, through complex VMAT techniques and including large field IMRT treatments.

In September 2021 MedEuropa Bucharest began using IQM at one of their Elekta Versa HD linear accelerators. High-workload cancer centers like MedEuropa Bucharest immediately benefit from the significant time savings IQM provides at every step of the treatment verification process.
Raducu Popa, Head of Medical Physics at MedEuropa Bucharest, confirms:
“Using IQM is very simple and fast. With IQM verification becomes an integral part of our clinical workflow. We immediately experienced time savings of at least 4-5 hours per week.”
IQM verifies every modern treatment technique with unrivaled accuracy. From the smallest stereotactic field sizes up to large field IMRT treatment techniques, IQM provides a new level of insight on treatment delivery accuracy.
Raducu Popa states:
“With IQM we know exactly how accurately our linear accelerator delivers every single beam segment. This aspect is really important to us. With IQM we know that we treat our patients with exactly the dose that was prescribed by our Radiation Oncologists.
Dr. Bogdan Angheloiu, CEO of MedEuropa Romania adds:
“Due to the accuracy and time savings experienced in our treatment verification process at MedEuropa Bucharest, and the satisfaction of our physics team there, we have decided to equip all our next projects with IQM.”
