Radiation Therapy at Paras HMRI Hospital and Paras Cancer Centre – Patna:

Radiation Therapy is a highly specialized treatment protocol that can manage and treat cancer. The treatment includes exposing the cancer cells with carefully targeted and regulated doses of high energy radiation to kill the cancer cells. The treatment is regulated and managed in such a way that it does not affect the surrounding healthy tissues of the body. Radiation causes some cancer cells to die immediately after treatment, but most die or become incapacitated as a result of the radiation-induced damage to the cancer cell’s chromosomes and DNA.

The radiation oncologists provide treatment in the form of targeted radiation therapy for the following types of cancer :

  • Bone marrow or stem cell transplant
  • Breast Cancer
  • Cancers of the Central nervous system (brain, spinal cord, neurological)
  • Endocrine Cancers – (thyroid cancer, parathyroid cancer, adrenal cancer, pituitary cancer)
  • Gastrointestinal cancer (anus cancer, colon cancer, rectum cancer, esophagus cancer, hepatobiliary cancer, pancreatic, stomach cancer)
  • Genitourinary cancer (bladder cancer, kidney cancer, prostate cancer, penis cancer, testis cancer, ureter cancer)
  • Gynecologic cancer (cervix cancer, ovarian, uterine cancer, vaginal cancer, vulvular cancer)
  • Head and neck cancer (nasopharynx cancer, cancer of the nasal cavity and sinuses, oral cancer, cancer of the oropharynx, hypopharynx, larynx, salivary gland)
  • Lung cancer
  • Lymphoma, leukaemia and myeloma
  • Melanoma
  • Other skin cancers (squamous cell, basal cell, Merkel cell)
  • Cancer of the Sarcoma (bone, soft tissue, abdominal)

Types of Radiation Therapy at Paras HMRI Hospital and Paras Cancer Centre – Patna:

Depending on the type of cancer, the location of cancer, the organs and tissues that the cancer is affecting and the extent to which it has spread, the team of cancer specialists and radiation therapy specialists can recommend the type of radiation therapy needed.

3D conformal radiation therapy is a type of radiation therapy that shapes the high dose radiation beams meant for the cancer cells in the form of the tumor. This type of radiation therapy is targeted and focuses precisely on the tumor while avoiding the healthy surrounding tissue. Such a radiation therapy helps in killing the cancer cells or shrinking the tumors.3D-CRT is used to treat tumors that in the past might have been considered too close to vital organs and structures for radiation therapy. For example, 3D-CRT allows radiation to be delivered to head and neck tumors in a way that minimizes exposure of the spinal cord, optic nerve, salivary glands and other important structures.A number of cancer types have seen improved outcomes from 3D conformal radiation therapy, including Brain cancer, Head and neck cancer, Liver cancer, Lung cancer, Prostate cancer.

Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is the use of frequent imaging during a course of radiation therapy for the purpose of improving the precision and accuracy of the delivery of radiation treatment. IGRT is used to treat all types of cancer, but it’s particularly ideal for tumors and cancers located very close to sensitive structures and organs. IGRT is also useful for tumors that are likely to move during treatment or between treatments. IGRT is used to treat tumors in areas of the body that move, such as the lungs.

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is an advanced type of radiation therapy used to treat cancer and noncancerous tumors. IMRT uses advanced technology to manipulate photon and proton beams of radiation to conform to the shape of a tumor.IMRT uses multiple small photon or proton beams of varying intensities to precisely irradiate a tumor. The radiation intensity of each beam is controlled, and the beam shape changes throughout each treatment. The goal of IMRT is to confirm the radiation dose to the target and to avoid or reduce exposure of healthy tissue to limit the side effects of treatment.

Stereotactic body radiation therapy or radiotherapy (SBRT) and stereotactic ablative radiation therapy or radiotherapy (SABR) both describe an advanced form of radiation therapy that is used to treat many different types of cancer. SBRT is typically used to treat small, early-stage non-small cell lung tumors. Specific examples of SBRT/SABR include:- Lung SBRT/SABR, Spine SBRT/SABR, Liver SBRT/SABR.

Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) uses photons (W-rays) generated by a medical linear accelerator. Very small beams with varying intensities are aimed at a tumor and then rotated 360 degrees around the patient. This results in attacking the target in a complete three-dimensional manner. Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) Treatment involves three basic steps: diagnosis, treatment planning, and delivery. As part of the diagnosis, the medical team generates three-dimensional diagnostic images (usually CT and/or PET) of the patient’s anatomy and then uses these images to specify the dose of radiation needed to treat the tumor.

Brachytherapy is a form of internal radiation therapy that uses ionizing radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. It is often used in combination with chemotherapy drugs to decrease the risk of cancer recurring. Brachytherapy involves the placement of radiation sources nearby or inside a tumor. These radioisotopes may be contained inside seeds, ribbons or wires and allow a higher total dose of radiation to treat a more targeted area in a shorter time than is possible with external radiotherapy.
