Radiation Oncology

The speciality of Radiation Oncology, from it's inception has progressed tremendously with the transition from a two dimensional approach to that of three dimensions. The benefits of using a three dimensional planning and conformal therapy are

   Improved tumor control because of better coverage of Targeted Volume
   Less Toxicity
   Improved Survival

Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) is a form of three dimensional conformal radiation therapy which is used to attain specific clinical objectives to improve radiation distribution in a variety of cancers

Radiotherapy can also be administered internally by placing a small piece of radioactive material temporarily inside the body near the cancer cells

The type of radiotherapy given to each patient will depend on the size, type of cancer and where it is present in the body

Radiotherapy can also be used to help alleviate bone pain in advanced cancers
