We became the first dual-Tomotherapy center in Asia.

Successfully completed the first “whole bone marrow radiotherapy” in Asia in September 2007, significantly reducing the many side effects of using whole body radiation therapy before bone marrow transplantation. We become the third in the world to have this highly difficult treatment.

We also successfully assisted the University of Cambridge's Hospital to complete the first spiral bone marrow irradiation combined with bone marrow transplantation.

In September 2013, the world's first "Helical Irradiation of Total Skin (HITS) was published for the refractory and extensive cutaneous lymphoma.
