The deparment has latest technologies for rendering accurate dose of radiation to even sub - millimeter size of target
The machine has the unique ability to deliver thousands of beamlets travelling in a straight line or in tangents. It confers the advantage of being able to deliver recommended radical doses of radiotherapy, even to tumours that are closely situated near critical organs.
The advanced in- built CT scanner present in the machine gives the advantage of imaging the treatment area on a daily basis, which helps the technologists to make any necessary on table adjustments, prior to the delivery of radiation, to correct any shifts or movements.
The machine then delivers radiation in a slice-by-slice manner to the tumour. This is a unique feature of Helical Tomotherapy and cannot be achieved by using any other radiotherapy machine available in this day and age.
Tomotherapy H can be used as definitive mode of treatment in newly diagnosed cancer, post operatively to reduce the risk of loco regional recurrence, and also on retreat patients in whom cancer has come back after being treated previously.
