The new standard of care
As the UK’s leading independent oncology specialist, we are dedicated to providing the latest evidence-based treatments from around the world, in a high quality, safe environment – without delay.
We have been at the forefront of introducing the routine use of Deep Inspiration Breath Hold (DIBH) for all left-sided breast cancer patients receiving radiotherapy (RT), based on strong evidence this reduces radiation dose to the heart and lung. DIBH is also routinely used for all patients treated with a VMAT technique, including delivering regional nodal irradiation (RNI) to the internal mammary chain (IMC), regardless of laterality.
We are the first independent oncology provider in the UK to formally implement DIBH for right-sided breast cancers, as standard as it has been shown that it provides clinically significant reductions in potentially toxic right lung doses and mean liver dose.
