CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System

The CyberKnife is a dedicated stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic radiotherapy system which is distinguished for its innovative design and ground-breaking technology. It was the first system to obviate the need for a mechanical fixation frame for intracranial treatments by utilizing real time image-guided technology coupled with a robotic manipulator. With CyberKnife, radiosurgery can be applied for the treatment of lesions (malignant, benign, or functional) anywhere in the body upon clinical indication.

TomoTherapy: Versatile, efficient, and effective radiotherapy

The TomoTherapy® System is a revolutionary radiotherapy system, which redefines the standard for individualized and precise treatment of tumors anywhere in the body — while creating a new paradigm for patient comfort and quality of life. A complete IGRT/IMRT solution, TomoTherapy combines integrated CT imaging for exceptional treatment accuracy with a first-of-its-kind helical treatment delivery platform that uses patented beam-shaping technology to precisely target tumors while minimizing impact on surrounding healthy tissue.

The use of automation and Artificial Intelligence in laboratories

The healthcare marketplace is constantly changing. Laboratories also need to constantly upgrade their equipment and resources in order to remain efficient and competitive. The optimal solution includes automation combined with expertise as the prominent feature of a laboratory. The combination provides an integrated approach which ultimately facilitates the management of the workflow and increases the productivity.

Advanced radiotherapy techniques in cancer treatment

Radiation oncology is the medical specialty in which high-energy X-rays or charge particles are used to kill cancer cells, so that their growth, proliferation and spread are inhibited. It is estimated that one in two cancer patients needs radiation therapy, while 40% of cures are due to radiation therapy. At the same time, the fact that approximately 33,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed annually in Greece is extremely worrying.
