Development of 3-dimensional radiotherapy treatment planning system
Present status and expansion areas
The Department is undergoing
a major expansion process. Mecaserto simulator CT, Isis advanced 3D treatment
planning system and lab facilities for tumor biology studies have been recently
established through Indo-French assistant protocol. The department has added
Clinac 600 C, a Low Energy Linear Accelerator in 2005 funded through the Ministry
of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India.
The Department had also added a Clinac 2100CD, a High Energy Linear Accelerator with MLC and mMLC for establishing the state the art of radiation therapy like Stereotactic radiotherapy (SRS/SRT), Conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) and Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), Varis network system, Eclipse and Helios treatment planning system, Multi slice CT scanner with virtual simulation and tele-radiotherapy system through a grant received from Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi, Government of India.
Further, the Ministry
of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India has recognized as Regional
Cancer Centre has sanctioned a grant for augmenting a MLC and Portal Imaging
in the Clinac 600C, Image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) facility in Clinac
2100CD and ancillary equipment accessories.
The high dose rate brachytherapy
which is being practiced over the last 10years inthe department is also planned
to add ultrasound and inaged based brachytherapy to complete range of brachytherapy
