About us

Their precise dose rate control and absolute positional accuracy allow the delivery of complex treatments with confidence.

Currently the Holman Clinic Launceston operates 3 Varian iX Linear accelerators with all optional extras including CBCT, IMRT, VMAT and respiratory gating.

Other equipment includes a Phillips Big Bore CT Simulator.

The clinic also houses Tasmania's only automatic after – loading high dose rate brachytherapy unit.

This specialised radiation therapy treatment equipment has been much publicised and is a valuable tool in the treatment of localised tumours where direct access to the treatment site can be gained.

Currently the Holman Clinic is operating a Nucletron Flexitron Automatic HDR After Loading system with the Plato BPS planning system and Oncentra Prostate.
