Our Services

Advanced Radiotherapy Close to Home

We offer a wide range of radiotherapy treatment options that can be used as stand alone therapy or in conjunction with surgery, chemotherapy, or hormone therapy.

We also offer a variety of diagnostic and imaging services featuring advanced technology such as On-Board Imager (OBI), Cone-Beam Computed Tomography, TruBeam®, and RapidArc®.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body
Radiation Therapy Now Available in Munster

Our Cork facility is the only radiotherapy centre in
Munster to offer these advanced treatments. The
innovative, sophisticated technology of the Varian Edge™ Radiotherapy System, precisely delivers measured doses of radiation to a specific part of the body, which may result in fewer, shorter treatments.
