The Department of Radiation Oncology at Jaslok Hospital was established in 1973 and is known for being the first radiotherapy facility in a private multidisciplinary hospital in India. The facility was upgraded in 1997 with installation of a digital high energy linear accelerator (Siemens Primus) with 3D treatment, stereotactic radiotherapy, brachytherapy, and therapy simulator. The local area therapy network connects the equipment, and Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) connection allows data (patient data, imaging and treatment data) transfer electronically for accurate treatment. This state-of-the-art facility was inaugurated by the then H’onble President of India.
In the year 2008, a second linear accelerator (Siemens ONCOR Expression) with sophisticated intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) with high-end software for treatment planning and quality assurance was installed. This upgraded technology allows precise radiation dose delivery to the tumour area, at the same time protects nearby normal/critical organs. Till date, more than 1200 patients have been treated using this high-tech radiotherapy with encouraging results.
We are now equipped with two linear accelerators, a telecobalt unit, brachytherapy, conventional simulator and three treatment planning systems. On an average, 120 patients are treated daily using state-of-the-art techniques such as three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT), IMRT and IGRT. Facilities like CT scan and PET-CT scan are available in-house. The Department of Radiation Oncology at Jaslok Hospital is one of the largest private care centres in the state of Maharashtra.
We have procured a new LINAC (linear accelerator) replacing the Primus linear accelerator. The new Precise Digital Linear Accelerator with two photon energies and six electron ranges with MV IGRT and volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) has been commissioned. The Precise Treatment System from Elekta has been designed specifically to deliver the best treatment and personalised cancer care. Highlights of the machine include intelligent digital coordination of multiple LINAC functions, interactive IGRT solution for accurate patient position verification, fast and effective treatment solution with VMAT delivery, multiple photon and electron energies for clinical flexibility and upgradable solution to support future growth and latest developments.
The Precise Treatment System makes use of multileaf collimators (MLCs) for beam shaping with integrated digital control. ‘iView GT’ is Elekta’s MV electronic portal imaging solution that provides real-time, high quality images using the treatment beam for image acquisition with low dose. Single, double and multiple image acquisition modes are available with movie loop playback, image display and manipulation and on- and off-line workflows with MOSAIQ image management. MOSAIQ is a comprehensive image-enabled electronic medical record for radiation oncology, and Data Director enables archiving, retrieval and management of data to support advanced IGRT techniques. Clinical data has shown that patients benefit from IMRT treatment, but it needs to be performed safely, quickly and efficiently right from planning through delivery. As a result, a rotational IMRT technique known as VMAT has been developed.
VMAT is an advanced radiation therapy technique that delivers high radiation doses precisely to the tumour target, while reducing dose to the surrounding tissues and organs. Using single or multiple radiation beams that sweep in uninterrupted arcs around the patient, it enables the treatment time to be reduced dramatically.
