Radiotherapy is a very important treatment modality in cancer. Radiation is used for curative treatment as well as symptom palliation for the majority of patients with cancer.

 

This department is equipped with two of the highest precision radiation delivery units – the Tomotherapy HiArt and the Varian Novalis Tx linear accelerators. Treatment planning is performed on the Eclipse, Brainlab  and Tomotherapy planning systems. Networking is provided on the ARIA platform. A widebore GE Lightspeed CT simulator is used for 3D image acquisition. A Varian RPM Gating system allows for precise targeting of tumors moving with respiration. These allow the implementation of some of the latest techniques in radiation therapy including Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT); Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT); stereotactic radiotherapy and respiratory gating. Brachytherapy will be delivered with the VariSource High-dose-rate (HDR) Brachytherapy unit. The use of MRI and PET-CT based treatment planning is performed as indicated.

 

The Radiation Oncology Team at TMC has an excellent mix of doctors and medical physicists who have practiced in some of the best institutions in India and abroad. There is an emphasis on quality assurance at every level of the radiotherapy planning and treatment process.
