About Atrys Portugal

Atrys is a global company dedicated to providing precision diagnostic services and state-of-the-art treatment for diseases such as cancer. Their network of five specialised radiotherapy oncology centres in Spain, Switzerland and Portugal offers cancer patients access to the highest quality, personalised care from a team of experts using the very latest treatments and technologies.

Atrys Oncology Network

The leading cancer centre of the network based in Porto works through a healthcare model whereby pathologists and oncologists share protocols and jointly discuss each case in weekly international tumour committees. Atrys offers patients any type of treatment they may need in the course of their illness, with personalised solutions for each case. Patients are accompanied throughout the path of the disease from its precise diagnosis to surgery and chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or immunotherapy treatments.

Atrys provides patients with the highest quality diagnoses and treatments and standardised care across their network.

Atrys comprises a team of experts with international experience, supported by the most advanced technology. Offering state-of-the-art, personalised cancer care, each case is overseen by the multidisciplinary tumour committee. The committee shares the latest medical-scientific advances, best clinical practices, medical advice and comes to an agreement so that the patient always receives the best therapeutic option. Cancer care at Atrys centres is comprehensive.

State-of-the-art radiotherapy

Atrys oncologists were pioneers in the use and establishment of hypofractionated radiotherapy techniques in Europe. Their physicians have a broad experience in the use of state-of-the-art treatments. Atrys’s oncology centres are equipped with the most advanced radiotherapy treatments such as Image Guided Single Dose Radiation Therapy (SD-IGRT) and hypofractionated radiotherapy.

SD-IGRT allows high doses of radiation to be delivered very precisely, greatly reducing the impact on healthy tissues. The treatment can be delivered in a single session and subject to specialist consultation can be used to remove a tumour at an early stage, providing new therapy options for patients who are unable to undergo surgery or who do not have other effective treatments available to them.

Extreme Hypofractionated radiotherapy is an advanced technique that is increasingly being used to treat a range of cancers. During hypofractionation, more intensity of radiation is delivered per session, so a lower number of sessions (2-5) are needed allowing patients to complete their course of radiation therapy more quickly with the possibility of fewer short term side effects and a better quality of life.

External radiotherapy

External radiotherapy utilises high-energy rays produced by a linear accelerator, which are directed from outside of the body precisely towards a tumour. It is generally used either to eliminate cancer or in cases that require prevention of a recurrence. It can also be used as a palliative treatment to alleviate difficult symptoms caused by the presence of metastasis or advanced cancer.

External radiotherapy treatments available at Atrys are:

  • Conventional External Radiotherapy
    - 3D Radiotherapy
    - IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy)
  • Advance External Radiotherapy
    - Frameless fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery
    - IGRT (Image-guided radiotherapy)
    - VMAT (Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy)
    - SBRT. Extracranial radiosurgery
    - SD-IGRT/SRS
    - 4D Radiotherapy

Second opinion and genetic counselling

Atrys provides second opinion oncology consultations for people diagnosed with cancer who want to get a second opinion from an expert team and discuss treatment options. They also provide genetic counselling for people who have a cancer diagnosis or a family history of the disease.

Personalised, precise cancer care

Cancer can present itself differently from person to person and treatment is not ‘one size fits all’. At Atrys, multidisciplinary working, combined with the most up-to-date technology, ensures fast diagnosis and highly personalised health care tailored to the needs of each patient.

Treatments are designed to provide the best results, both in terms of efficacy in the fight against cancer and in the health and well-being of the patient, in the short- and long-term. Using the most advanced precision techniques and systems, potential side effects are reduced and in many cases the duration of treatment is considerable shortened.
