- About the Department

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.
