The Dept. of Radiation Oncology commissioned the state-of-the-art machine, the laser guarded Image-guided Radiation therapy (IGRT) and respiratory gating along with IMRT-the intensity-modulated radiation therapy, one of its own in Asia in 2007. This highly specialised department treats Brain, Head and Neck, Thoracic, Abdominal, Genito-urinary, and Extremity tumours. We upgraded the facility to VMAT (Volumetric modulated Arc Therapy- Rapid Arc) in February 2013.
The second linear accelerator machine, Versa HD -Stereotactic Precision Radiotherapy unit (Triple F), was inaugurated on 6th February 2017. Versa HD has high precision beam shaping and tumour targeting capabilities to provide faster and more accurate treatment for a broader range of cancers. It offers both conventional and stereotactic treatments. Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) are great alternatives to invasive surgery. SRS and SRBT are a boon, especially for patients who cannot undergo surgery and for tumours and abnormalities located close to vital organs.
