As the sole provider of cancer care services to a population of about 1.5 million people in Eastern Ontario there are many opportunities for learning in our program.
Our centre is well equipped with nine VMAT capable linear accelerators, two Tomotherapy units, a Cyberknife, an orthovoltage unit, three large bore CT simulators, a MRI simulator as well as a HDR brachytherapy program with a dedicated OR. This equipment is located across two cancer centres at opposite ends of the city.
A Gammapod unit for dedicated stereotactic breast treatments is being commissioned.
There is a robust interaction between the different disciplines in Radiation Medicine including Oncology, Therapy and Medical Physics and a comprehensive clinical trials program exists in the cancer centre.
