The Department of Radiation Oncology at Max Institute of Cancer Care (MICC), Saket, today inaugurated the Radixact X9 Tomotherapy, which is paired with the 2nd generation synchronised respiratory motion management system. This cancer patient’s radiation therapy treatment uses AI-based real-time tracking and treatment delivery to ensure that the tumour is not missed owing to chest or abdominal breathing movement during radiation.
This technique destroys or reduces tumors by combining the precision of intensity-modulated radiation therapy and image guided scan.
“With the launch of this advanced therapy we want to reiterate our commitment towards cancer treatment and the welfare of cancer patients. New radiation technologies have made it possible to precisely target and destroy the cancer cells while preserving normal cells of the body. With this new technique, the Department of Radiation Oncology at Max Institute of Cancer Care (MICC) Saket, has added another milestone in its journey towards providing best-in-class healthcare services in the field of oncology.” Said Dr Charu Garg, Director- Radiation Oncology, MICC, Max Hospital, Saket
