Recent Technological advancements have allowed for precise and accurate therapy with radiation , providing a viable option as a cure for individuals diagnosed with cancer.


Since 20th century radiation has been increasingly used to diagnose and treat cancer. Although, radiation therapy was often known to destroy healthy tissue in its attempt to kill cancer cells, technological advancements have allowed for precise and accurate therapy, providing a viable option as a cure for individuals diagnosed with cancer.

The technological transition process from the initial technique applied to the latest technique currently used has had a direct effect on treatment outcomes and safety.

Over the decades studies focussed on development of more innovative radiotherapeutic devices able to treat cancers in the deep tissues. This period saw the introduction of the cobalt tele therapy providing high energy gamma rays and of more potent electron linear accelerators able to deliver megavoltage X rays.

This first cobalt therapy in South East Asia was installed in 1956 at the institute and first linear accelerator in the country was installed at the institute in 1976. At present we have 3 linear accelerators with fourth one being replaced by end of this year. We are proud to have the Indian manufactured linear accelerator “ Siddharth 2 ” as well.

The new millennium saw the affirmation of the stereotactic radiation therapy and the introduction of adaptive therapy. Stereotactic body radiotherapy has been practised at the institute for the past few years. Proper case selection and precise treatment execution are the main focus in SBRT. SBRT delivers extremely precise intense doses of radiation to cancer cells while minimizing damage to healthy tissues. It involves the use of sophisticated image guidance that shows the exact location of the tumors so that the radiation can be more precisely delivered. SBRT is usually used to treat small early stage lung cancer, pancreatic cancer or cancers that have spread to the lung, liver, adrenal gland or spine.

Coventional radiation typically is delivered in relatively small doses each day over several weeks. By contrast, SBRT can be given in five or fewer daily sessions and completed.

Innovative Practice(s)

Total Body Irradiation using Cobalt beam as a cost effective pre-treatment for ablation before Bone Marrow Transplant. Has been found to reduce the post transplant morbidities.

Stereotactic radiotherapy

using extreme hypofractionation and shortening treatment time for small tumors of the brain,lungs,liver and other organs with equal results as the standard treatment.
