Amethyst chooses to implement the latest technology available in radiotherapy: Volumetric modulated Arc-Therapy

With VMAT, radiation beams sweep around the patient, greatly reducing treatment time compared to conventional radiation treatment.

  • Higher dose on the tumor
  • Shorter treatment time
  • Better protection of surrounding healthy tissues
