The Department of Oncology is one of the major Department of Holy Spirit Hospital .
It was established in 2010 It is considered as one of the referral centre in India for the treatment for all types of Cancers.
The Department has a Holistic approach with the best of human expertise and state of the art technology in treating the deadly disease.
We have a dedicated team of specialised Oncologist for the treatment of all types and forms of Cancer
We have the most advanced state-of-the-art technologies assisting our specialists to obtain the best clinical outcomes.
It directs high energy radiation at the tumour from outside the body to destroy cancer cells.
It helps in curing cancer by stopping its growth, spread, also provides relief from pain and bleeding due to cancer .Our facility delivers very precise and optimal dose to the tumour sparing the surrounding normal tissues to the maximum. The treatment is given in high precision and accuracy. The team consists of Radiation Oncologist, Medical Physicists and Radiation Therapists.
The treatment planning system conforms to the 3D shape of the Tumour using
Multi leaf collimators that shapes the beam.
IMRT: Intensity –Modulated radiation Therapy
This is a specialised form of 3DCRT, where each radiation beam is subdivided into many
Tiny ‘beam lets ‘. Intensity of each of them can be varied individually, thereby effectively delivering the radiation dose more precisely to the target while further limiting the dose to the surrounding normal tissues.
IGRT: Image guided radiation therapy
Use of sophisticated imaging technologies guides the delivery of radiation therapy more precisely. Tumours can move during treatment and between treatments. For dynamic targeting IGRT, theLINAC is outfitted with sophisticated imaging devices. It helps in targeting the tumour more precisely sparing surrounding normal tissues and allows for dose escalation to the target improving chances of cure.
Rapid arc technology is an advanced form if Intensity modulated Radiation Therapy that delivers a precisely –sculpted 3-dimension dose distribution with a 360-degree rotation of the gantry in a single or multi –arc treatment. High speed treatment delivery system with shorter treatment time increases patient comfort on couch.
