Introduction

The Department of Radiotherapy and Oncology is giving its services in fighting cancer since 2011. The department is responsible for Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy and Palliative Care of cancer patients. All three units are look after by a team of well trained and experienced team of Oncologists. Teaching and clinical and translational research in the field of cancer is a continuously ongoing process in the department. 


The department is equipped with world class technology for radiotherapy treatment delivery, treatment planning and radiation dosimetry. The department has a high energy medical linear accelerator for external beam radiation therapy, Monaco treatment planning system and dosimetry equipment for reference, absolute and routine dosimetry and patient specific quality assurance. A GE Optima 580 CT simulator is being utilised for routine radiotherapy simulation of the patients. The department is treating patients with external beam radiotherapy using various techniques like 3D-CRT, IMRT, VMAT, IGRT, SRS/SRT SBRT and electron beam therapy respectively. Along with this, there is a specialised and dedicated 32 bedded ward for chemotherapy in the department facilitating the patients from all around the state. The palliative care unit is handled by the team of oncologist trained on a national level palliative care program. palliative care nurse and a social worker is always there to help the patients. 

 

The department has a team of two faculty and three senior resident Radiation Oncologists well trained and experienced in external beam radiation therapy, chemotherapy and palliative care. The radiation safety of installation, patients and public is ensured by accredited Radiation safety Officer. The treatment planning, quality assurance, radiation dosimetry and protocol management is look after by the team of Medical Physicists. The department has team of Physics Technicians who take care of the simulation and radiation delivery to the patients. Along with this a team of trained nurses look after the chemotherapy and palliative care units respectively. 

 

Vision

“Be a Centre of Excellence in providing comprehensive cancer care, training and research.” The department believes in the philosophy of “think Big” and always aims to achieve milestones. As a short-term goal, the department aims to enhance the basic facilities to the patients in radiation, chemotherapy and palliative care. Also, the teaching programs and cancer awareness programs in local areas are on priority. The department is willing to start the four-dimensional image guided radiation therapy (4D-IGRT) and adaptive radiation therapy (ART) and stereotactic radiosurgery/radiotherapy (SRS/T) and stereotactic ablative body radiation (SABR) in the upcoming year. Also, several research projects aimed to enhance cancer care are in pipeline. 


In its future endeavours the department of Radiation Oncology plans to extend the external beam radiation facility. Keeping in view the present patient load and clinical requirements, the department is willing to acquire another cutting-edge medical accelerator and high dose rate brachytherapy equipment. With this, the minor operation theatre in the department will be made functional for better, accurate and more targeted radiation therapy. The department is all set to start the post graduate courses in Radiation Oncology and enhance the educational and trainings and spread its legacy in cancer care nationally and globally. 

Core Values:

  1. Patient First: We believe in complete patient care and prioritise each patient equally.
  2. Innovation: customization in each move to enhance cancer care and patient comfort, that inspire us to innovate.
  3. Learning and Growing: Our core believes in education and training motivate us to learn all new aspects and implement those clinically, so we grow to lead.
  4. One Team: Different disciplines, one passion, one commitment, one practice and one dream “DEFEAT CANCER”
