BLK Super Speciality Hospital is the proud home to Cyber-knife VSI ® - Asia`s first and world`s seventh installation of its kind. The Cyber-knife VSI is a Whole Body, Robot Guided, Radio Surgery System which offers the miraculously accurate and precise Radiosurgery for even in-operable tumors - such as tumors in the lung, relatively inaccessible areas of the brain, spine and prostrate. The system offers extremely accurate non-invasive and painless treatment to the patients. In addition, the Centre has installed the latest generation PET CT Scan to aid accurate diagnosis and treatment of a multitude of diseases. Besides the Cyber-knife VSI , BLKCC`s Department of Radiotherapy has the latest Trilogy Tx Linear Accelerator, offering state-of-the-art IGRT, IMRT, 3DCRT, Stereotactic RT and High Dose Rate Brachytherapy.
TRILOGY TX Linear Accelerator is equipped with Volumetric radiotherapy planning called RAPID ARC. This treatment not only reduces the daily Treatment time on the machine but also helps in saving normal tissues around the tumor to a higher extent as compared to other techniques.
