The Radiation Therapy Department at Kamalnayan Bajaj Hospital is committed to providing high-quality and advanced cancer treatment using state-of-the-art radiotherapy techniques. Our department is equipped with cutting-edge technology including Linear Accelerators, Simulators, and Dedicated Treatment Planning Computers. We have the capability to create customized immobilization devices and lead shields in-house. Our department is intricately networked with CT scans and MRIs, allowing seamless DICOM image transfer for comprehensive radiation therapy services in the Marathwada Region.
The primary goal of radiation therapy is to deliver a potent dose of radiation to a specific target area, effectively treating cancer while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. This approach aims to achieve the best possible therapeutic outcome with minimal side effects.
Effectiveness of Radiation Therapy:
Radiation therapy is an effective treatment option for various types of cancers affecting different parts of the body. It serves two main purposes:
- Curative: Radiation therapy is aimed at curing cancer by targeting and destroying cancerous cells.
- Palliative: In cases where cure may not be possible, radiation therapy helps alleviate symptoms and improve the patient’s quality of life.
- Radiosensitive Tumors: Cancers that respond well to radiation therapy, such as Dysgerminoma, Seminoma, Neuroblastoma, Retinoblastoma, and lymphomas.
- Intermediately Sensitive Tumors: Cancers that show moderate response to radiation, including Skin cancer, head and neck cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, prostate cancer, Ewing’s sarcoma, and rhabdomyosarcoma.
- Radioresistant Tumors: Cancers that are less responsive to radiation, such as soft tissue sarcoma, bone tumors, and melanomas.
Our Radiation Therapy Department offers a range of advanced treatment techniques, including:
- External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT)
- CT – Simulator
- Linear Accelerator (LINAC)
- 3D-Conformal Radiotherapy
- Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
- Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT)
- Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT)
- Stereotactic Radiotherapy (SBRT)
At Kamalnayan Bajaj Hospital, we are dedicated to providing cutting-edge radiation therapy services to effectively treat cancer and improve the lives of our patients.
