RADIATION ONCOLOGY

Radiation Oncology Department offers the most modern high-precision radiation treatments supported by a team of experienced doctors, physicists, technologists, radiation nurses, etc.

The Plan & Process

A Multi disciplinary Tumor Board comprising doctors from all specialties discusses the treatment plan for every patient. Then a Radiation Oncologist counsels and informs the patient about the detailed plan. After the CT Scan known as CT Simulation, radiation physicists carry out the radiation treatment. We have a unique program called ‘Chart Rounds’ that bring together all the doctors collectively to review all the plans and make corrections, wherever necessary.

Facilities:
  • Two modern LINACs or Linear Accelerators (Elekta Versa HD with add on Apex Dynamic 2.5 mm MLC and 6 D Couch) for treatments like Sterotactic Radiosurgery, Sterotactic Body Radiotherapy, Image Guided Radiotherapy, Arc based therapies, Intensity Modulated procedures as well as Cone beam CT verification.
  • Montecarlo-based planning systems and a unique Dolphin System for quality assurance.
  • Nucleotron Microselectron – An 18 channel HDR brachytherapy machine with an Oncentra Planning System which is used currently for various procedures including Intracavitary brachytherapy for Gynecological malignancies, MUPIT (Martienz Universal Perineal Interstitial Template) based interstitial brachytherapy, catheter based brachytherapy for soft tissue sarcomas and intraluminal brachytherapy for esophagus, endobronchial brachytherapy for lung, endobiliary brachytherapy etc..
