“The X-ray room has been functioning in the Mariinsky Hospital since 1952 and was first equipped with Russian X-ray therapies. In 2014, the morally and technically obsolete devices were replaced by modern Xstrahl-200 and Xstrahl-300 (UK) devices, which allowed to reduce the time of patient exposure due to higher radiation intensity several times, thereby increasing the cabinet’s throughput.”

“Since October 2017, the radiation clinic and MVZ radiotherapy at the Sana Klinikum Offenbach have a new orthovolt device for X-ray irradiation. “We are pleased to be able to offer our patients another treatment option with the new device,” explains chief physician Prof. Dr. med. med. Peter Niehoff. The advantage of the new device is that it uses low energy and thus minimizes stress on surrounding tissue. X-ray irradiation is used in inflammatory and degenerative joint diseases and connective tissue diseases. Prof. Niehoff explains the possible uses: “These diseases include wear disorders such as the so-called tennis elbow as well as joint arthrosis of the finger joints or knees, bursitis in the shoulder or hip joint, the heel spur and much more.””

“The pain relief effect of the radiation was known after the discovery of the x-ray beams at the end of the 19th century. At the beginning of the 20th century the radiation therapy was used to treat not only benign conditions but also malignant tumours. This has changed and the number of benign degenerative and inflammatory conditions treated with radiation therapy subsided as new medicine and treatment modalities were developed.”
