Radiation Oncology at Bansal Hospital capitalises on the expertise and team approach of our sub-specialised radiation oncologists, physicists, and technologist. We use advanced technology Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), Volumatric Arc Radiotherapy (VMAT), Steriotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) to treat cancers of bladder, brain, breast, femal reproductive organs, head and neck, lung and prostate. Bansal Hospital is the only centre in Bhopal with Steriotactic Body Radiotherapy for small oligometastatic lesion in Brain, Lung, Liver and spine thereby increasing the probablity of eliminating the lesion completely and improving survival of patient even in stage 4 disease. Bansal’s Radiation Oncology is deeply involved in the investigation of both conventional radiotherapy and specialised new technologies that may be applicable to the treatment of various malignancies.
Radiation Oncology at Bansal Hospital is committed to provide best-in-class precision radiation therapy. The technology and equipment being commissioned are comparable to that available in the most advanced centres across the globe. A Meticulous planning with accurate delivery is aimed to ensure optimal patient treatment with a human touch.
Radiation oncology is a medical speciality that involves the controlled use of radiation to treat cancer either for cure, or to reduce pain and other symptoms caused by cancer. Radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy) is the term used to describe the actual treatment delivered by the radiation oncology team.
Radiation therapy is a part of treatment in around 40% of all patients cured of cancer.
Radiation therapy can be applied safely to a wide range of cancers, and may be used alone or in conjunction with surgery, chemotherapy and other treatments. It is usually completely non-invasive, and accessed through out-patient clinics. Radiation therapy is a highly cost effective cancer. Recent advances have benefited many patients with cancer, resulting in higher cure rates, fewer side effects, shorter treatments and improved quality of life. New technology provides three-dimensional images of tumours that precisely target radiation beams to the cancer, limiting damage to important adjacent organs.
