Pre-Treatment Preparation

When you have radiotherapy, your treatment needs to be planned carefully and specifically for you. A number of steps will be completed. Depending on the area of the body treated you may need a special device to help you keep still in the treatment position. This will require one or more Mould Room appointments. It is usually necessary to undergo a planning CT scan and sometimes an MRI scan also. After this your treatment plan is produced.
