Exciting new equipment installed at The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Center

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

The Ottawa Hospital has recently undergone an extensive upgrade with the construction of a new cancer centre at the Queensway Carleton Hospital and renovation and extension of the facilities at the General Campus. Improvements include the installation of 5 state-of-the-art Elekta linear accelerators and a new brachytherapy suite with full OR capabilities for high dose rate remote afterloading and low dose rate seed implants. With the installation of a CyberKnife scheduled for August, our facilities in Ottawa will encompass the full range of modern radiation therapy equipment, one of the few centres in Canada to offer the complete range of commercially available current technology.
