Last term a group of Adv. Higher Physics & Chemistry students visited the Radiotherapy Department at A.R.I. Dr John McLellan, Head of Radiotherapy Physics, explained the principles of radiotherapy to the group describing the reasons why radiation is an effective treatment modality for cancer. He then demonstrated how an individual patient treatment is planned. This programme displays the anatomical information and is used by the physicians to outline a target volume; the dosimetrist then applies radiation beams and the software displays the resultant radiation dose, overlaid on the anatomy. We then visited a treatment room and saw one of the linear accelerators (linacs) that deliver the carefully planned treatments. Dr McLellan showed how the patient is carefully positioned and the machine moved to deliver the treatment. We all left the room and a treatment was delivered to a ‘phantom’ positioned on the couch – the cameras in the room enabled us to see the machine rotate as the radiation was delivered. We were able to see how the multileaf collimators operate on the linac as it rotates. Many thanks to Dr McLellan for giving us his time and allowing us a ‘behind the scenes’ look at radiation therapy.
