Radiation Oncology consultants are specially trained medical doctors who use ionising radiation for the treatment of cancer (and less often non-malignant diseases). The consultants at 5D are affiliated with both public and private state cancer treatment providers and all have extensive experience in conventional radiation therapy treatments, stereotactic body radiation therapy and stereotactic cranial radiosurgery treatments. At 5D, our consultants use the latest investigative technologies (to identify where to treat), in combination with CyberKnife (which can treat the targeted areas precisely) to ensure the best outcome possible is achieved for the patient. A biography for each of our consultants are included above.

Radiation Therapists work in conjunction with Radiation Oncology consultants, utilising ionising radiation to treat cancerous and benign disease in the body. Our radiation therapists at 5D Clinics all have extensive experience in robotic Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy planning and treatment delivery. Each therapist is trained and proficient in the use of the Accuray CyberKnife System. The 5D Radiosurgery specialists are responsible for the clinical processes associated with every patient, including treatment architecture, delivery and follow-up care.

Radiation oncology medical physicists are specialised medical physicists who have a fundamental understanding of how radiation interacts with the human body. Radiation oncology consultants and RTs often consult medical physicists on how to best use equipment to ensure that patients radiation therapy treatments are administered with a high level of accuracy and precision. Medical physicists also ensure that all equipment used as part of the treatment process meet national and international guidelines ensuring patient and operator safety as well as patient treatment quality. At 5D, our medical physicists have extensive expertise with the CyberKnife robotic radiosurgery treatment delivery machine and associated equipment.
