Technology and Machine:
Modern radiation technologies for effective therapy of cancer tumors:
Amethyst Radiotherapy Austria operates the most advanced medical linear accelerator from
Elekta (Versa HD). With this radiation device, we can carry out all common therapy
Our device applies the latest methods of radiation therapy, such as IMRT (Intensity-
Modulated Radiotherapy) and VMAT (volumetric modulated arc therapy). Multileaf
collimators (MLC) do allow to adapt the radiation fields to the tumor region optimally. An
integrated visualization system (ConeBeam-CT) provides Image-guided radiation therapy
Our Center offers a safe and effective treatment with exceptional facilities that allow
performing radiosurgery or radiotherapy of the tiny lung, brain, and liver tumors with the
greatest possible accuracy (better than 1 mm), sparing the damage to surrounding healthy
tissue. A HexaPOD radiation couch with 6 degrees of freedom makes this possible by
correcting the patient’s position exactly (translation and rotation).
We are located in the heart of Vienna, on the premises of Wiener Privatklinik, in immediate proximity to Vienna University Hospital.
