The Wolfgang Cancer Centre provides two kinds of services
Wolfgang Cancer Centre is located in the new 8-storey building of the Hospital (Block E). The ground breaking was performed by the Superior General of the Brothers of Mercy, Rev. Br. Peter Berg in July 2009. The construction commenced on 15th October 2011 and completed on 19th October 2012.
The Centre consists of 2 units, the Radiotherapy Unit (RTU) (lower ground) and the Chemotherapy Day Care (CDC) (ground). The CDC commenced operations on 18th March 2013, followed by the RTU which received its first patient on 26th March 2013.
For most patients, being diagnosed with cancer and living with it are the biggest challenges that they will ever face. They and their families need to know that they can access to modern technology for precise diagnosis and effective treatment. Wolfgang Cancer Centre is set up to be a complete and modern one-stop centre, fully equipped for both chemotherapy and radiotherapy to provide the best possible cure and care.
To provide a comprehensive, affordable and effective care to cancer patients.
1. 32-slice CT Scan
To simulate patient for precise 3-dimensional planning
Has a large bore gantry which increases diagnostic anatomical coverage for optimal diagnosis and treatment.
Comprehensive treatment planning system that simplifies modern radiation therapy planning for all kinds of treatment, including 3D conformal, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), electron, photon, and 3D brachytherapy
To deliver external beam radiation treatment
Equipped with dual photon energies and five electron energies
Fitted with a 160 multileaf collimator (Agility), which offers high resolution beam shaping, seamless field delivery coupled with rapid leaf-speeds which allows for higher dose rates to be used for more effective modulation
