Radiation Oncology

This group is fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for high-precision radiotherapy (IMRT, SRS/SRT) using TOMOTHERAPY and dual energy linear accelerator, networking advanced Treatment planning systems, CT-Simulator, integrated brachytherapy unit, and a physics workshop. A telecobalt unit - BHABHATRON developed by BARC has been evaluated and refined as a part of the indigenous technology development and evaluation programme. In keeping with the mandate of the centre, in addition to the common cancers, this group will also focus on paediatric cancers - in particular paediatric brain tumours, Total Body Irradiation and technology assessment including indigenisation, in co-ordination with all the collaborators and with the support of ancillary services.
