The Tomotherapy and Novalis Tx treatment units facilitate the administration of high precision radiation therapy targeted at the cancer bearing tissues with minimal collateral damage to adjoining healthy tissues reducing the potential side-effects of radiation. They are among the most advanced treatment delivery units in the world at this time. TMC is the first center in India after the Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai with Tomotherapy and among the first centers in India to possess the versatile capabilities of the Novalis Tx.

Together these units provide TMC the capability to offer

·    Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) for extremely conformal dose distributions

·    Volumetric Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) with MV and KV imaging for precisely targeting the cancer on a daily basis

·    Intracranial Stereotactic Radiosurgery for treating small lesions in the brain with a single dose of radiation.

·    Stereotactic Radiotherapy for treating small cancers in different parts of the body with a few high doses of radiation.

·    RapidArc or Volumetric Arc IMRT that enables IMRT treatments to be delivered within a few minutes adding to patient convenience and accuracy of delivery.

·    Respiratory gating on the Novalis Tx which allows accurate targeting of tumors that are moving with respiration.
