Useful information.

For your convenience, radiotherapy procedures are performed on an outpatient basis and last from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the treatment area.

Your oncologist-radiotherapist will prescribe you the required number of procedures and the intervals between procedures. An average of 3 to 5 treatments per week. If chemotherapy is associated with radiotherapy, then chemotherapy will be carried out in one of the partner centers under the medical responsibility of a chemotherapist oncologist.

During the first consultation, an appointment will be made to prepare for treatment. During the consultation for the treatment preparation, the patient will meet a team of operators who will conduct a dosimetric scan. This scanning is necessary to obtain complete information and adapt the treatment. Then, a consultation will be held with the paramedical workers of the center (operators and electro-cardiologists who specialize in radiotherapy).

 

Note! Even for patients who have insurance or patients who have been approved by AME, there may be financial charges that are not covered by insurance and the state! The patient is informed of these costs in advance.
