Gemelli ART is the Radiation Oncology Department, a highly specialised centre providing both in and outpatients with the best clinical and latest technological treatment options.
The main practice techniques at Gemelli ART are: Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Volumetric Arc Therapy (VMAT), Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT), Intraoperative Radiotherapy (IORT), Total Body Irradiation (TBI) and Brachytherapy.
Great importance is given to precise control of the entire delivery process, which is obtained thanks to the possibility of using an IGRT approach with state-of-the-art on-board imaging, such as EPID (electronic portal imaging devices) or cone-beam CT; a respiratory gating; a transponder-based system; an online portal dosimetry, and, in the close future, a MRI gating as well.
In addition, Gemelli ART has a Brachytherapy unit, a specific day hospital service and two dedicated wards, equipped for metabolic therapies, for palliative treatments, and for directly managing chemotherapy and supportive care.
Gemelli ART has received three Quality Assurance Certifications from the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO) in the last decade.
