Ion beam therapy, by the way, is also carried out within the framework of boost concepts in close cooperation with the respective radiotherapy centres at the Austrian hospitals. The indication is given in this case, if the application of a curative dose, without exceeding the dose limits in the area of critical risk organs, is not possible with photon therapy alone.
A therapy recommendation for each patient must be made in the context of an interdisciplinary tumour board discussion. In the case of an indication for ion beam therapy, this decision serves as a basis for submission to the Austrian health insurance companies for approval of the therapy at MedAustron. Communication with the health insurance companies is handled by MedAustron.
