Treatment & Procedures

This centre offers Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), a special kind of treatment, which focuses radiation to the tumour area while pushing it away from the normal tissues, thus minimising side effects. This department also offers some unique therapies like fiducial marker based Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) and Adaptive Radiation Therapy (ART) mainly for prostate cancer patients. Very few centres in this country currently offer these extremely accurate and targeted types of radiation therapies.

The department presently is equipped with:

  • Precise Digital Linear Accelerator: A state-of-the-art dual energy Linear Accelerator with IMRT capability. It is equipped with a Multi-Leaf Collimator (MLC) and an Electronic Portal Imaging Device (EPID), both of which ensure precision of treatment.
  • Simulator (ACUITY) helps to localise the tumour precisely, thus facilitating accurate radiation therapy.
  • CT Simulator: Dedicated CT simulator for radiotherapy planning.
  • ONCENTRA Master Plan is the first, one of its kind in the country. It uses a unique algorithm to plan IMRT treatment with great precision.
  • TiGRT Planning System has the potential to plan complex radiation treatment more expeditiously and accurately than traditional systems.
  • IBt BEBIG Brachytherapy: A remote controlled high dose rate (HDR) Brachytherapy system, which ensures that radiation treatments are delivered in a very short time with no radiation hazard to staff. The image-based 3 dimensional conformal Brachytherapy Planning System (Brachyvision) helps achieve maximum radiation dose within the tumour volume without harming the normal tissues.
