Cutting-edge development at the Oncoradiology Clinic in Debrecen

Oncoradiological patient care has been developed with a government grant of over two billion forints at the University of Debrecen. On Friday, the Oncoradiology Clinic's three new pieces of equipment and one of the world's most advanced radiation planning systems were officially inaugurated. At the event, Péter Takács, secretary of state for health, called the investment exemplary, which makes the clinic one of the leading Hungarian institutes, which is thus capable of a complete and high-quality cover of almost the entire spectrum of treatment.

Due to the HUF two billion development, two Versa HD-RS devices, the most advanced devices of Elekta's linear accelerator family, have arrived at the Oncology Radiology Clinic of the University of Debrecen Clinical Center, and purchasing a Siemens CT used for dedicated radiation planning has also become possible. In addition, one of the world's most advanced radiation planning systems (Raysearch) has been purchased.

Oncoradiological patient care at the University of Debrecen has reached an important milestone in a multi-year development concept, said György Kossa at the ceremonial inauguration of the equipment on Friday. The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Gróf Tisza István Debrecen University Foundation added: as a result of comprehensive development efforts that have taken place since 2017, a modern patient-centred care facility has emerged at the Oncology Radiology Clinic, which is an outstanding even by European standards.

A world-class unit has been created at the Oncoradiology Clinic of the University of Debrecen which can rightly be expected to become a European regional centre. The impact of the centre extends across borders in terms of treatment, education, and innovation. The existing knowledge base and state-of-the-art technology available at the University of Debrecen are suitable for the development of artificial intelligence, which represents the future.

The introduction of new systems enables the routine widespread use of high-level technologies and treatment procedures, complemented by new, previously unused procedures. As a regional centre, the Oncoradiology Clinic is responsible for the radiosurgery care of two and a half million people. Approximately two thousand new patients are treated with radiation at the clinic yearly.
