Radiotherapy

Southfields is one of the few centres in the UK to offer in-house radiation as part of our treatment for cancer. Led by a world-renowned RCVS and European Specialist, our radiation team has many years of experience dealing with radiation oncology cases.

The radiotherapy service enables referred patients to access a full-time, fullyfunctioning linear accelerator (LINAC), which uses ionizing radiation to accurately target and treat neoplasia and occasionally specific benign diseases.

Our service also offers a unique online platform that allows the referring veterinary surgeons to enter some basic information with the client and then discuss the potential treatment plans before booking a referral.

Advanced clinical services include:

  • definitive radiotherapy treatment (also known as curative-intent treatment), which is usually the protocol of choice for most cancers as it gives the best chance of long-term tumour control
  • palliative radiotherapy treatment (also known as hypofractionated treatment), which delivers a lower dose of radiotherapy that is sufficient to slow the tumour’s growth or reduce associated pain
  • low dose radiation therapy (LDRT) for osteoarthritis (OA), which is available for dogs to control chronic, unresponsive pain in the long-term.

Equipment and facilities include:

  • bunker made from solid concrete and lead
  • Varian linear accelerator
  • sophisticated planning software, specifically to decide on correct treatment plans and ensure optimal treatment of cancer with minimal side effects and complications
  • specialist vacuum bags for patient positioning to ensure accurate treatment.
