- About the Department

The Radiation Oncology Department at Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre comes with long rich history. Doing exemplary work for last 47 years, today recognized as pioneers in radiotherapy across the globe. Moreover, Jaslok Hospital is known for having 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 3-D treatment and Stereotactic Radiotherapy, Brachytherapy. 2008, saw the acquisition of a second Linear Accelerator (Siemens ONCOR Expression) with sophisticated Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) and Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) which allowed very precise radiation dose delivery to the tumour area at the same time protecting nearby normal/critical organs.

Our latest linear accelerator the TRUEBEAM system version 2.7 delivers precise dosage quickly and is designed to treat cancer wherever it’s found in the body and comes with many special features and tools for advanced image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) capabilities like Respiration-synchronized MV/kV radiographs, 4D CBCT, Iterative CBCT, Triggered Imaging and more.

It provides a variety of treatment techniques from simple conventional radiotherapy to Rapid Arc and more, to address broad range of cancer cases. It comes with sub- millimetre accuracy for increased conformity and with built in patient safety features for clinicians to navigate the complexities of cancer care with more confidence. It also masters newer techniques like Frameless Cranial Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Radiotherapy, Body Stereotactic Radiotherapy for example cancers of Lung, Liver, Pancreas, and Prostate and oligometastatic disease. Gated deep inspiration radiotherapy for especially left breast cancer patients to reduce the dose to Heart and substructures including the coronaries, gated treatments in moving targets like patients of breast cancer, lung cancer patients, helps in providing greater results and precise treatment.

With modern technology, the department has greatly improved control rates and simultaneously minimised possible adverse effects.
