Radiation Oncology

Radiation therapy, one of the most common cancer treatments, can be used as a standalone therapy or in combination with medical oncology or surgical oncology. In this treatment particularly high doses of radiation beam is given to patients to kill, shrink or slow the growth of tumor cells.

TrueBeam ®Linear Accelerator with Rapid Arch Technology:

Innovative, Intuitive and Intelligent

  • Most advanced SBRT technology
  • CT+LA combination for imaging and radiotherapy at the same time
  • Helps to get most precise positioning of cancer
  • International treatment plans
  • Reduced number of radiation cycle and actual treatment time on machine by patients
  • Includes Prone Breast Radiation Therapy with minimal effects for lungs and heart

D CRT: 3 Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy:

  • It is a treatment planning system that helps to give a 30 shape of the tumor
  • Delivers precise and optimal dose to the tumors and thus prevents damage to nearby tissues/ organs

IGRT: Image Guided Radiation Therapy:

  • This technology involves precise focusing of the radiation spot
  • Helps dynamic targeting of the tumors as they can move during or between treatments tissues much

MRT: Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy

  • It is an advanced form of 3D CRT, with radiation beam divided in small beamlets
  • Benefit of this is that the intensity of radiation beamlets can be moderated so that the dose is precise and does not affect the normal tissues much

Brachytherapy

  • Low Dose Rate (LOR) seed brachytherapy & High Dose Rate (HOR) brachytherapy
  • Computerized 30 radiation beam planning for brachytherapy
  • Minimal side effects, low dosage
  • It is an advanced form of 30 CRT, with radiation beam divided into small beamlets
  • Benefit of these beamlets is that the intensity of radiation beamlets can be moderated so that the dose is precise and does not affect the normal
