External Beam Radiotherapy.
The aim of EBRT is to deliver maximum dose to the tumour and minimize the radiation dose to the surrounding tissue. At NBOC we use the state-of-the-art internationally accepted technique of 3-Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3D-CRT) with a Linear Accelerator (Elekta). In 3D-CRT, CT slices are taken of the affected area, and the tumour and the important organs surrounding the tumour are marked. The Radiation treatment is planned using a computerized Treatment Planning System. The radiation beams are shaped and targeted at the tumour with sufficient margins while shielding the critical organs and surrounding normal tissue.

As opposed to external radiation such as with Linear Accelerator, Brachytherapy treats cancer using precisely placed radioactive sources within and around the tumour. The high dose rate (HDR) Micro-Selectron Genie machine (Nucletron) installed at NBOC is useful for treatment of cervical, bronchial, oesophageal, breast and Head / Neck cancers. For large tumours both Brachytherapy and External Beam RT is given to achieve better control.

Treatment Delivery
Radiation Therapy is planned as per protocol guidelines and delivered by a team of  Oncologists, Medical physicists and Technologists. It involves daily out patient treatment and varies from few days to 6 – 8 weeks depending on the treatment schedule. An anaesthesia or a minor operation is required prior to Brachytherap

Medical Oncology.

All types of chemotherapy are administered including those for haematological malignancies, following established protocols under the guidance of oncologists. Specially trained nursing staff assists in administration of chemotherapy in both day care as well as inpatients. In order to make administration of chemotherapy safe and more patient friendly, use of central catheters and ports is a routine in the department

Surgical Oncology.

A vast array of cancer operations are being carried out by members of the faculty with specialist training in surgical oncology. Reconstructive surgery and conservation surgery where appropriate are performed. Either as a Palliative measure (for control of symptoms in inoperable cancers) or as an adjunct to nonoperative treatments, endoscopic and minimally invasive techniques (without open operation and anaesthesia) such as oesophageal and biliary stenting, endoscopic balloon dilatations, image-guided drainages, percutaneous nephrostomies, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomies, etc are being routinely carried out. Surgical packages are commensurate with site of cancer, duration and complexity of surgery
