Radiotheraphy Department

General Information:

The mission of the department of Radiotherapy is to provide compassionate, state of the art, quality radiation treatment to cancer patients while integrating education, clinical research, and radiation physics to achieve improved outcomes.

Department has three functional bunkers for High Energy Linear Accelerator, one for Brachytherapy, one for CT simulator and one for conventional simulator. All bunkers are constructed as per AERB norms and ready for installation. Radiation treatment center is the most comprehensive facility of its kind. Specially trained Radiation Oncologists and Medical Physicists are skilled in a wide range of standard and evolving treatments including latest techniques like SRT/SRS IMRT, IGRT, Brachytherapy. By using the latest treatment planning technology available our radiation oncologists and medical physicist can design treatment with pinpoint accuracy, ensuring that tumors get the most effective dose while healthy tissue and organs are spared.

In clinical services, the first and foremost responsibility of faculty of Medical Physics in Radiation Oncology is towards patient. Qualified Faculty in Medical Physics for Radiation Oncology clinical practice is to assure the safe and effective delivery of radiation to achieve a diagnostic or therapeutic result as prescribed in patient care. The Faculty in Medical Physics in Radiation Oncology performs or supervises the technical aspects of procedures necessary to achieve this objective. By training and practice the Radiological Physicists are competent/expert in radiological science and patient care.

Today Faculty in Medical Physics for Radiation Oncology Services contribute to maintain and improve the quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness of healthcare services through patient-oriented activities requiring expert action, involvement or advice regarding the specification, selection, acceptance testing, commissioning, quality assurance including quality control, and optimized clinical use of medical devices and regarding risks from associated physical agents especially ionizing radiation.
