Directory of Radiotherapy Centres

The IAEA maintains a register of radiotherapy hospitals and clinical institutions having radionuclide and high-energy teletherapy machines. The information can be found in DIRAC (Directory of Radiotherapy Centres).

The Directory of Radiotherapy Centres (DIRAC) is a continuous update, based on replies to questionnaires circulated by the IAEA among its Member States.

It includes data not only on teletherapy machines, but also on sources and devices used in brachytherapy, and on equipment for dosimetry, patient dose calculation and quality assurance. Staff strength at the installations (radiation oncologists, medical physicists, technicians, etc.) is included as well.
