The Department of Radiation Oncology provides state-of-the-art and quality radiation treatment to the cancer patients. It offers comprehensive treatments including External Beam Therapy. The department is equipped with one of the most advanced Linear Accelerator Varian Clinac DMX, capable of delivering a wide array of treatments like IMRT (Intensity Modular Radiotherapy), IGRT (Image Guided Radiotherapy)., 3D-CRT, 2D-RT, Electron Boost Therapy and Electron Beam Therapy.
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.
Rapid Arc radiotherapy technology is a new approach to image-guided, intensity-modulated radiation 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.
