Total Body Irradiation

Preparation

Before treatment, planning around the stem cell transplantation must be finalized. 

  • The indication for hematopoietic stem cell transplant must be determined by a team with experience in this treatment. The general health status of the team and complicating comborbidity must also be evaluated by the team.
  • Stem cells must be available and ready for use by harvesting from the patient or a donor.
  • Days before radiation therapy starts, plans must be made for admission, transport to and from treatment, days for chemotherapy, and planned stem cell reinfusion, as well as necessary follow-up during the aplasia period. 
  • Due to the complexity of the procedure, morbidity and mortality, adequate information for the patient and loved ones from the oncologist responsible for treatment is very important. 
  • A close dialog between the hematologist and oncologist is also very important.
