Radiation Oncology comprises of 2 major types.

Internal & External Radiation

External Radiation (Linear Accelerator)
Cancer treatment is multidisciplinary. This department of Oncology is composed of a team of MCI- certified and Board-Certified Medical Oncologist Radiation Oncologist, Pathologists, Medical physicists, licensed Radiation therapists, Registered Nurses, Medical social workers, Dietician and Specially trained support personnel who have many years of experience in treating and caring for patients undergoing cancer therapy.
Our linear accelerators and the computer-controlled image guidance systems are fully integrated for a seamless radiation therapy process. The linear accelerators operate in multiple modes, delivering both photon and electron radiation at different energy levels, so the radiation oncologists can choose the most appropriate energy and depth of treatment for each individual case.

Brachytherapy
We have Varian GAMMAMEDPLUS IX 24 channel Brachytherapy which is one of the advanced technologies in the current world market. Internal radiation is also called brachytherapy. A radioactive implant is put inside the body in or near the tumour. Getting the implant placed is usually a painless procedure. Depending on your type of cancer and treatment plan, you might get a temporary or a permanent implant.

Internal radiation therapy (brachytherapy) allows a higher dose of radiation in a smaller area than might be possible with external radiation treatment. It uses a radiation source that’s usually sealed in a small holder called an implant. Different types of implants may be called pellets, seeds, ribbons, wires, needles, capsules, balloons, or tubes. No matter which type of implant is used, it is placed in your body, very close to or inside the tumour. This way the radiation harms as few normal cells as possible.

Brachytherapy is used to treat several types of cancer. Brachytherapy can be used alone or in conjunction with other cancer treatments. For instance, brachytherapy is sometimes used after surgery to destroy any cancer cells that may remain. Brachytherapy can also be used along with external beam radiation.
