Radiation Oncology

Radiation Oncology Treatment in Kochi.

Radiation Oncology is a leading-edge cancer treatment which is often misunderstood as harmful while in real, is very effective and safe.The most advanced technology used, contains high energy radiation that kills powerful cancer cells, destroying the chance of their reproduction. This is the reason why Radiation Therapy is considered as an excellent tool to fight cancer. Moreover, it is less expensive, compared to other treatments used to beat cancer.


The department of Radiation Oncology at VPS Lakeshore, carries top-notch facilities in radiation treatment, delivering all advanced techniques which includes Teletherapy (External Radiation) and Brachytherapy (Internal Radiation). The team not only ensures the delivery of high precision radiation but also strive to make the treatment a comfortable experience to the patient.

The Key Highlights of this department include:

  • External radiation, which is delivered by two Linear Accelerator machines from ELEKTA. The latest version of Linear Accelerator series from ELEKTA is Versa HDâ,,c with triple FFF technology. Being equipped with AgilityTM 160 multi-leaf collimator for high-speed, high-precision beam shaping, is what that helps to deliver focused and accurate dose to cancer cells while sparing every other organ. This controls the degree of tumor with least side effects.

  • Triple FFF technology which delivers treatment at a very high dose rate, which itself minimises the time of treatment. Here, the patient becomes more comfortable and also, the treatment delivery is accurate.

  • Brachytherapy machine from ELEKTA which delivers internal radiation. It can deliver intracavitary, intra luminal and interstitial treatment to the various sites.

  • Radiation planning software tools that help in the precise localization of the tumor and normal structures. They also help in quantifying the dose received and make appropriate modifications.

  • Facility of fusing previous diagnostic images (CT Scans, MRI or PET). CT Scans ensure accurate localization of tumor even though the patient has done the initial surgery or chemotherapy.

  • IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy) which offers more precision compared to 3DCRT - Three Dimensional Conformal Treatment techniques. IMRT is greatly useful in the treatment of head and neck, pelvic and thoracic tumors.

  • ELEKTA VMAT (Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy) system, which allows single or multiple beams to sweep in uninterrupted arcs around the patient. This improves dose distribution by way of intensity modulation.
