Mount Vernon Cancer Centre currently has seven linear accelerators and one Cyberknife machine. Three machines are due for replacement in 2020, three in 2022, one in 2027 and one in 2028.
Radiotherapy machinery is normally replaced every 10 years, although some machines can last longer depending on a range of factors, for example, software upgrades. The three machines due to be replaced this year are between 10 and 13 years old.
