As the largest radiation-oncology department in Austria, we offer tailored treatment for patients with all sorts of cancer. Radiotherapy makes use of highly complex machines applying ionizing radiation, which can completely inactivate malignant tumours or alleviate tumour-related symptoms.
Most patients are treated on an outpatient basis. For about half of them the treatment aim is curing their disease. If healing is not possible, symptom relief and improving quality of life are the most important treatment intentions. At our wards patients receive combination therapies (radiotherapy combined with systemically active substances) or supportive treatment.
At the Medical University of Vienna and within the European Society for Radiotherapy & Oncology (ESTRO) and the Austrian Society for Radiotherapy (ÖGRO), we are committed to national and international training of radiation-oncologists, medical physicists, and radiation biologists.
Medical treatment at the highest technical level combined with optimal care for our patients are our main concerns.
