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

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.

Brachytherapy

Brachytherapy is a form of radiotherapy where a radiation source is placed inside or next to the area requiring treatment. Brachytherapy is commonly used as an effective treatment for cervical, prostate, breast, and skin cancers, and can also be used to treat tumors in many other body sites.

Brachytherapy can be used alone or in combination with other therapies, such as surgery, external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) and chemotherapy.

IGRT (Image Guided Radiation Therapy)

Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is the use of imaging during radiation therapy to improve the precision and accuracy of treatment delivery. IGRT is used to treat tumors in areas of the body that move, such as the lungs. Radiation therapy machines are equipped with imaging technology to allow your doctor to image the tumor before and during treatment.

IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy)

IMRT is an advanced type of high-precision radiation that improves the ability to conform the treatment volume to concave tumor shapes.
