The HYGEIA Hospital Radiation Oncology Centre is a Centre of Excellence for Stereotactic Radiotherapy/Radiosurgery according to the International Radiosurgery Association.

A Reference Site for Radiation Oncology: Centre of Excellence for Stereotactic Radiotherapy and Radiosurgery. Based on wide experience and international acclaim, Hygeia’s Centre of Radiation Oncology and Medical Physics department have been selected by Elekta as a Reference Site and one of the five pilot centres in Europe that collaborate with Elekta’s Research & Development in order to improve and test new treatment planning software.

The Radiation Oncology Centre is the most modern and fully equipped center in Greece and one of the best in Europe. State-of-the-art technology, combined with vast experience on the latest radiotherapy techniques (IMRT, VMAT, IGRT, SRT/SRS) – first implemented by HYGEIA Hospital in Greece – ensure safe and accurate radiation therapy for patients.

HYGEIA Hospital has been accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI). The quality and safety of every patient treatment is guaranteed through a series of procedures that do not allow treatment delivery unless special checks have been performed. All quality control procedures are implemented through the latest Mosaiq patient management system and are electronically recorded. All patient related procedures are included in the patient’s electronic medical record.

HYGEIA’s Radiation Oncology Centre also has a specialized team for pediatric radiotherapy. The center treats the majority of pediatric cases in Greece using the latest techniques for pediatric cancer treatment.


The radiation therapy techniques used are:


Accuracy – safety – patient management

  • All linear accelerators are equiped with on board imaging (IGRT) and allow patient imaging on the treatment couch in order to ensure accurate irradiation of the tumor – target.
  • All treatment plans are verified prior to treatment start using the latest 4D verification system Compass IBA (the only one in Greece) ensuring accurate and safe treatment delivery.
  • A full electronic medical record is used that includes patient demographic data, patient history, treatment details as well as everyday treatment data ensuring safe patient panagement and follow up.


The centre is equiped:

  • Elekta Versa HDTM linear accelerator with Flattening Filter Free Technique (FFF) 
    Equipped with sophisticated conformal beam-shaping technology and High Dose rate mode delivery, Versa HD is designed to provide the precision and speed necessary to deliver IMRT/VMAT as ell as advanced stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), techniques that demand the maximum accuracy in tumor targeting and protection of critical structures.


  • Elekta Synergy AgilityTM linear accelerator 
    Agility is designed to meet the needs of modern radiotherapy. Agility offers excellent clinical flexibility and efficiency, while ensuring that patient safety and comfort.


  • Elekta Microselectron HDR
    The microSelectron automated, digital remote afterloading platform is a field-proven, reliable system for multiple brachytherapy applications – from simple to complex treatments.


  • Gamma Knife 
    Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ offers extreme accuracy (0.15mm), efficiency and outstanding therapeutic response. Today, cranial radiosurgery with Perfexion is performed in hundreds of leading hospitals and clinics around the world.


  • Latest treatment planning systems Monaco 5.1, Oncentra, γ-plan, VariSeed
    Monaco delivers high performance and high precision radiotherapy treatment planning for all major treatment techniques for photon and electron based plans. By combining the superior accuracy of Monte Carlo and Collapsed Cone algorithms with the richness of advanced optimization tools in a modern, intuitive user workspace, Monaco delivers highly accurate 3D, IMRT, VMAT and SRS plans.
    Oncentra Brachy optimizes treatment plan accuracy, providing easy navigation to any plane that offers the most relevant information per region of interest. Powerful inverse planning optimization automates volume-based planning, making the process fast and efficient.
    Gamma Plan is the dedicated planning software for Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion enables optimal clinical performance, in terms of speed, planning, ease, targeting accuracy and re-treatment.
    VariSeed™ LDR Treatment Planning System supports all common planning protocols including real time, pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative.


  • Mosaiq Patient Care Management System
    Mosaiq Care Management software allows efficient management of all aspects of the centre’s radiation oncology program.
