Radiation Oncology Hospital in Mumbai

Radiation oncology, a crucial treatment modality, employs high-energy radiation (radiation therapy) to eliminate cancer cells. Our radiation therapy services integrate cutting-edge technology with compassionate clinical expertise. Our department offers patients access to advanced imaging techniques for precise cancer cell targeting while minimizing damage to normal tissues, resulting in shorter treatment duration and improved clinical outcomes.

Radiation Therapy in Mumbai

Radiation therapy is a highly effective treatment for various cancers. Our team of radiation oncologists collaborates closely with patients to tailor a personalized treatment plan based on their clinical condition. Depending on the treatment goal, a combination plan may be recommended. Radiation therapy encompasses two primary types: external and internal radiation.

External beam radiation, generated by machines outside the patient's body, such as linear accelerators, is non-invasive and painless. Internal radiation involves the insertion of radioactive materials at the cancer site.

Radiation therapy can be administered through different methods:

1. 3-D Conformal Radiation Therapy (3DCRT): Utilizing computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), 3D images are created to precisely target the tumor from multiple angles with multiple radiation beams, matching the tumor's shape.

2. Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT): This technique incorporates high-quality imaging before each treatment session to focus powerful radiation precisely at the treatment area, enhancing tumor control and shortening treatment schedules.

3. Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT): An advanced technology that adjusts photon and proton radiation beams to conform to the tumor's shape, targeting the specific area while minimizing exposure to healthy tissue and reducing side effects.

4. Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT): A more advanced version of IMRT where the machine rotates around the patient's body, resulting in shorter treatment time and reduced radiation exposure to healthy tissue.

5. Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS): Utilizing highly accurate targeted radiation in large doses over five or fewer sessions, SRS is particularly effective in killing cancer cells. When used for tumors outside the brain, it's referred to as Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) or Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy (SABR).

6. Brachytherapy: Involves placing sealed radioactive material inside the patient's body, delivering higher doses of radiation to specific cancerous areas in shorter periods while limiting exposure to normal tissue. It can be used alone or in combination with external radiation for various cancers.

7. Photodynamic Therapy (PDT): A two-stage treatment combining light energy with a photosensitizer drug to destroy cancerous cells. The photosensitizer is activated by a specific wavelength of light, making it toxic to the targeted tissue. This non-surgical technique is used for several cancers, including skin, lung, bladder, pancreas, bile duct, and esophagus.

This comprehensive approach to radiation therapy ensures patients receive personalized, effective treatment with minimal side effects, making us one of the best hospitals for radiation therapy in Mumbai.
