Radiation Oncology

Radiation oncology treatment

Approximately 50% of cancer patients who undergo cancer therapy are subjected to radiation therapy at some point of the treatment plan. Radiation treatment is largely a local therapy in which radiation is administered in and around the cancer cells, and hence accuracy in radiation oncology is pivotal to determine its effectiveness. Cytecare Radiation Oncology Centre has therefore been set up with the most advanced technology like the Elekta Versa HD, the first such machine in Karnataka. The technology is administered by a fully trained and skillful team comprising of radiation oncologist, radiology and imaging specialists, physicists and dosimetrists who undertake an extensive treatment planning approach in close consultation with the multidisciplinary team of surgical and medical oncologists.

At Cytecare, to administer personalised care to all its patients, the multidisciplinary team of experts devise the dosage, the pattern of administration and the implications of the therapy on the overall well-being of the patient. Radiation therapy is included in the patient's individualised treatment plan as the primary form of treatment, combined with other treatments like chemotherapy to fight against the growth of new cancer cells, before surgery to shrink a tumour, after surgery to eliminate any remaining cancer cells, as a treatment for cancer that has spread to other areas of the body or as a palliative treatment to relieve pain.
