The Radiation Oncology Department has sophisticated Novalis Tx (Varian) and Siemens Linear Accelerator with multi-energy photons and electron beam facility enabling us to treat all types of tumors. These machines are capable of arc therapy, total skin electron therapy and total body irradiation. The accuracy of this specialized treatment is checked with the EPID (Electronic Portal Imaging Device).
This ultra-modern technology can deliver high precision external Beam Radiotherapy like High Definition RapidArc, IGRT (Image Guided Radiotherapy), 3D-CRT, IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy), 3-D CRT (3-Dimensional Conformal Radiotherapy), PET-CT Guided Radiotherapy, Syngo Fusion Technology, 3-Dimensional Treatment Planning System, Simulator, high precision external beam Radiotherapy. The CT scan, MRI & PET-CT Scan has networking with Radiotherapy Planning & Treatment which makes the entire treatment procedure highly precise.
Bone marrow is a soft, sponge-like material found inside the bones. It contains immature cells known as hematopoietic stem cells which divide to form more blood-forming stem cells. Bone Marrow transplantation is a process that restores stem cells that have been destroyed by high doses of chemotherapy and /or radiotherapy. It is used for management of benign conditions like aplastic anaemia, sickle cell disease etc and malignant diseases like lymphoma, leukaemia, myeloma and neuroblastoma. Our hospital started the BMT Unit in July 2011 and we have the facility to treat six patients simultaneously in our dedicated BMT unit.
