AT Rela’s, our radiation therapy team frequently collaborates with leading manufacturers of radiation therapy equipment on research and development. As a result, we have early access to advanced radiation technology. Using this advanced technology enables a range of radiation therapy treatments for cancer. Our infrastructure is also incomparable to other hospitals in the region.
Truebeam Linear Accelerator
The TrueBeamTM System is an advanced radiotherapy system from Varian Medical Systems that has opened the door to new possibilities for the treatment of lung, breast, prostate, head, and neck as well as other cancers.
It is designed to deliver more safest and most powerful cancer treatments with pinpoint accuracy and precision.
It uniquely integrates advanced imaging and motion management technologies within a sophisticated and relaxing architecture that makes it possible for our radiation oncologists to offer treatments for patients more quickly while monitoring and compensating for tumor motion.
Brachytherapy is a kind of local radiation therapy that is performed on a specific part of your body by placing radioactive material contained in seeds, ribbons, or capsules. It is also called internal therapy at times.
This type of therapy allows the doctors to deliver high dosages of radiation to a more specific part of the body.
This kind of therapy causes fewer side effects than any normal radiation therapy.
The different types of brachytherapy are:
Low-dose rate (LDR) – LDR implants emit low doses of radiation for 1 to 7 days.
High-dose-rate (HDR) – HDR implants emit high doses of radiation for 10 to 20 minutes. Treatment time varies from twice a day for up to five days to once a week for up to five weeks.
Permanent – Radioactive implants emit radiation 24/7 until there is no radiation left in them. The implants or the seeds, which are almost the size of grain remain in your body permanently.
