Radiation Therapy is one of the most effective modalities for the majority of cancers. It is estimated that Radiation Therapy is directly responsible for at least 40% of all cancer patients surviving beyond five years. Technical, academic and clinical advances in radiation Therapy have improved patient management and outcomes very significantly. The development of more sophisticated approaches to radiation Therapy treatment have been made possible by improvements in radiological imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance (MR), computer tomography (CT), computerized 3-dimensional, ”inverse” treatment planning, patient positioning , and more sophisticated linear accelerators.
The CBCC Cancer Centers are equipped with following, which adds to the accuracy & precision and helps in optimizing effectiveness of radiation therapy.
Rapid Arc radiation Therapy technology is a new approach to image-guided, intensity-modulated radiation Therapy therapy (IGRT/IMRT) that delivers precise treatments in shorter times than conventional IMRT. Rapid Arc delivers a highly precise treatment much faster than other technologies.
