Advanced technologies in oncology in Israel
At the Davidoff Cancer Center, the most advanced unique RAPIDARC equipment is implemented to give a new hope for many patients suffering from oncological diseases.
The technology is based upon the on-line application of high-precision linear accelerators in combination with computed tomography. RAPIDARC provides for 10-fold radiation rate targeted to a cancer tumor, as compared with apparatuses of previous generation with healthy organs not affected. The use of RAPIDARC provides for significant reduction of treatment duration as well as decrease in adverse effect rates, allowing for prolongation of patient lifetime by avoiding surgical operation. According to specialists working with this apparatus at Davidoff, upon termination of the treatment course, a patient may return to normal life with virtually no recovery period required.
