Detail:Clinical Activities / Objective of the department:The cost of precision radiotherapy with quality control is increasing rapidly with the incorporation of advanced technologies in the modern radiotherapy equipments. To cope with the situation the department of radiotherapy is provided with a new state-of-the-art Dual Photon Energy Linear Accelerator with IMRT, IGRT, VMAT and Stereotactic Radiosurgery & Stereotactic Radiotherapy facilities to cater precision radiotherapy also to the economically backward cancer patients. The patient treatments utilizing the above facilities in the department have started since March 2012. Procurement of the second Linear Accelerator with Low Energy X-Ray with all the above facilities and 4D wide bore CT Simulator is under process. In addition the department also possesses one Tele-cobalt machine, two High Dose Rate remote after-loading Ir-192 Brachytherapy machines including Integrated Brachytherapy Unit, CT Simulation facility and 3D-Treatment Planning System.
The department runs Post Graduate Courses like DNB Radiotherapy and Post M.Sc. Diploma Course in Medical Physics. The department also started internship in Medical Physics. Further, the department runs undergraduate courses like DRT (Tech) & DRD (Tech). The department organized regular seminars for various academic programs running in the department.
