Radiation therapy is a form for treatment used for
loco-regional control of cancer used often before or after surgery as neoadjuvant or adjuvant treatment in most cancers. It may also be offered along with
chemotherapy as a radical curative treatment especially for head and neck cancers and cervix cancers. Radiation therapy is also used in advanced cancers as a
part of pain relief and palliation.
We at Kauvery Cancer Centre are equipped with advanced Linear Accelerator Radiation Unit,
and have skilled and experienced radiation oncologists who can plan and deliver precise radiation to the tumour tissue, and sparing normal tissues, thus
avoiding the side effects of radiation therapy. Advanced radiation technique such as IMRT is frequently used in treating tumours at crucial sites which give
precise doses of radiation giving best possible outcome with minimal side effects.
