High Precision Radiotherapy

Radiation Therapy, also known as radiotherapy (RT) is a type of non-operative treatment of cancer, which uses radioactive energy or ionizing radiation delivered through machines to destroy the cancer cells in the body. It is usually done in multiple sessions and a single session can be completed comfortably in a matter of few minutes.

There is a constant evolution of technology to deliver high doses of radiation with fewer side effects, improved cure rates, shorter treatment duration and improved quality of life. Horizon cancer care with its expansive network provides access to a full range of advanced radiation technology delivered by an experienced senior radiation oncology team with minimal side effects, improved cure rates, fast and effective results, and a better standard of life.

Types of Radiation Therapy

What is External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT)?

External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT) is the most commonly used form of radiation treatment wherein the tumors are treated with an external beam of ionizing radioactive x-rays from a machine outside the body.

What Type of Cancers Are Treated With EBRT

What is Internal Radiation Therapy (Brachytherapy)?

Also referred to as Brachytherapy involves inserting small pellets of radioactive material internally into the affected tumor area or nearby area. It allows the radiotherapist to use a much higher dosage of radioactive material over smaller areas than External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT).

What Type of Cancers Are Treated with Brachytherapy?

Full-Service Provider of Radiation Therapy

Horizon Cancer Care is the #1 healthcare provider of high precision radiotherapy services in Hyderabad. We offer a full range of top-rated radiotherapy services through our network centers stone unturned.

Types of External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT) Services

3D Conformal Radiation Therapy: Shapes the radioactive beam to fit the shape of the tumor so that the healthy tissue around the tumor is spared.

Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT): The advantage of IMRT is it sculpts the edges in addition to shaping the radioactive beam to fit the shape of the tumor, ensuring that the surrounding healthy tissue is safe.

Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT): This technique relies on the use of imaging (CT) to deliver high precision radiotherapy, perfect for treating tumors in areas in the body that move. Examples: Lungs, Liver, & Prostate.

RapidArc: A faster and more precise version of IMRT, relies on the use of the 360-degree rotation of the accelerator’s gant and can be done 5 min.
It is perfect for treating tumors in the Prostate, Lung, Brain, Spine, Head & Neck.

Stereotactic Radio Surgery: Contrary to what the name suggests, this is not a surgery, but it functions much like a surgery! It is used to give high doses of radiation to a small portion of the brain in 1 to 6 fractions of a second. SRS cannot remove the tumor, but it ensures that the biological tumor is inactivated.

It is perfect for treating Brain Tumors/ Meningiomas/Schwannomas/Trigeminal Neuroglia/ Arteriovenous malformations (AVM).

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy

If SRS is used for treating cancer tumors in body parts other than the brain, then it is referred to as Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy. It is perfect for treating tumors in the Lungs, Liver, Bones, and other body parts. This radiotherapy is delivered by Cyberknife, Novalis Tx, XKnife, & Axesse.

True Beam Radiosurgery

This is a time-tested and proven method for treating cancer tumors. It is faster, effective, and less time taking and reduces the chances of tumor motion essential for safeguarding the surrounding healthy tissue. Perfect for delivering a comfortable high precision radiotherapy service.

Theranostics

PET scan imaging is used to detect if specific targets, known as tumor receptors, are present on tumor cells; if they are, the tumors are treated with a radioactive medication.

Treatment for Advanced Prostate Cancer:

Lutetium-177 PSMA (Lu-PSMA) therapy is a new treatment for advanced prostate cancer. It attempts to treat your symptoms and delay their progression. It does not cure your cancer.

Treatment for Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumors:

Lutetium-177 Octreotate therapy (Lu-Octreotate) is a treatment for carcinoids or advanced neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).
