RapidArc- Innovation in Cancer Treatment
Department of Radiotherapy at the Institute is equipped with the world's latest & Asia's First Varian RapidArc Linear Accelerator, equipped with most sophisticated 3D planning systems. The Department is one of the busiest and one of the most sophisticated academic departments in the country.
The technology used in RapidArc represents an exponential leap forward in the speed, power and precision of radiation therapy. It is capable of delivering radiation at a faster dose rate than most conventional linear accelerators. Other special features improve the accuracy of treatment so the overall duration of a course of treatment may also be shortened from several weeks to just a few days. The technology also enables more effective treatment of tumors in locations that were previously difficult to treat because of the sensitivity of the surrounding tissue to radiation
