Radiation Oncology Department

Vision

      The Radiation Oncology Department fights against cancer and prevents cancer with patients and relatives, seeking hope and health for everyone.

 

History

    Shuang Ho Hospital established the Radiation Oncology Department in February 2009. Located on B2 covering an area of 400 pings, the department is designed bearing health, safety and barrier-free in mind. Fresh air is introduced and circulated in the whole department and positive pressure air conditioner is used to maintain the healthy environment. The wide aisle in the department is convenient for patients on sick beds or in wheelchairs.

    The staff in the department include Chief of Radiation Oncology Department Doctor Jo-Ting Tsai, Doctor Ming-Hsien Li , Doctor Jang-Chun Lin, Doctor Yu-Jen Wang,  Doctor Yi-Chieh Tsai and two Residents. Besides the abovementioned doctors who have quite a lot of clinical experiences, there are also five medical physicists, nine radiologists, four registered nurses, one project manager, one department secretary and two general affairs staff. The department emphasizes on patient care from multiple departments. For each newly diagnosed cancer patient, the most appropriate care is provided after the doctors have discussed in multiple department meetings.

    The department applies high-accuracy, high-efficiency and low-harm advanced radiotherapy. Therefore, Image-guided Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT), Tomotherapy, Gamma Knife and Intracavity Brachytherapy were introduced and used in the department from the very beginning. For that, our department is the largest and most equipped Radiation Therapy Center in New Taipei City. As the department pays extra attention to patients’ holistic nursing care, the Spiritual Care Center was established in March 2011. Care and psychological support are provided to cancer patients and relatives from volunteers and staff who are especially trained by the department.

    Along with the progress in cancer treatment researches, tumors can be controlled more accurately and the harm to normal tissues is greatly reduced. The department will hold its initial intention since the establishment to introduce new treatment technologies to help the patients. Under the industry-academic cooperation with Taipei Medical University, the department is moving towards the goal of becoming an excellent cancer treatment center.
