Department of radiation was started in Nov. 2016, one year after the start of the hospital. As the landmark development, AADHAR Hospital started Radiation treatment with the world’s best radiation treatment machine “TRUE BEAM SVC”.

Different types of technique like 3- Dimensional Conformal Radiotherapy (3-DCRT), Intensity Modulated Radiation (IMRT), Image guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) with on board robotic CT Scan, Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and stereotactic Radiotherapy (SRT). This machine have the facility of electron (different energies) and photon (choice of five energies depending upon the patient weight). Details of the demographic profile of the patients are as follows.

More than five thousand patients presented to the radiation out patients department in last six years. We treated a total of 3849 patients or a total 76416 Fractions till date by different techniques of radiation. Out of this 2587 were male patients and 1262 were female patients. As cancer is a life style disease and tobacco uses is very common amongst males. This may be the reason for high prevalence of cancer in males.

Head and neck being the commonest cancer which is being treated with radiation therapy accounting for one third of total patients which presented to department of radiation in last six years. Carcinoma Breast and carcinoma lung being the second and third most common cancer which were given radiation respectively. This may be again because of high tobacco and alcohol consumption in the society.
