Radiation Oncology at the ONJ Centre and the Ballarat Austin Radiation Oncology sites combine expert knowledge and technical capabilities to provide you with best possible care.
At the ONJ Centre, we operate three Linear Accelerators (linacs), including an Elekta Versa HD, all with Cone Beam CT and advanced imaging capabilities. Our treatment couch is a Hexapod 6o of freedom couch top. The Versa HD linac has Exactrac imaging capability, complementing our Stereotactic Radiation Therapy program. This allows for small corrections in treatment angle and position before and during treatment.
For most techniques, our imaging allows us to ensure millimetre, or sub-millimetre, accuracy of radiation therapy delivery.
We are actively involved in a number of clinical trials and research. These trials are a very important element of the service at The ONJ Centre and BAROC, as participation ensures our staff and facilities remain world class. The ONJ Centre is proud to support ongoing research at the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute. Austin Health radiation oncology is a Facility Alliance Member of the Trans Tasman Radiation Oncology Group.
