Radiation Oncology

When it comes to radiation therapy to treat cancer or non-cancerous benign conditions, precision matters! In this highly complex and rapidly evolving field, our team of radiation oncologists are standing at the forefront of medical innovation. Star Hospital is equipped with the first and the only TrueBeam STx Linear Accelerator in the entire Telangana and Andhra Pradesh that features HyperArc.

Ground Breaking Techniques

Star Hospital in Hyderabad is proud to present a transformative advancement in cancer care with the TrueBeam STx Linear Accelerator equipped with machine learning (AI). A testament to our unwavering commitment to innovation, this state-of-the-art technology is poised to redefine the landscape of radiation therapy in terms of precision and accuracy with the advanced features, including HyperArc and Knowledge-Based Planning, and Tumour tracking which enables us adaptive treatment efficacy, and personalised patient care of the highest order.

Adaptive Radiation Therapy: Our treatments can be dynamically adjusted to patient anatomical changes, and motion changes, that radiation delivery is synchronized with patient respiration, even in the presence of organ motion like lung, liver etc.

Variety of Tumors: Due to the wide range of energy spectrum in this technology, our medical professionals can use this spectrum to treat different tumors and optimize treatments for different depths.

Perfect Pitch Precision: Patient positioning accuracy is enhanced by the Perfect Pitch feature, which provides 6 degrees of freedom with the couch, resulting in optimal treatment outcomes without compromising patient comfort.

Reduced Treatment Time: This technique has the unique advantage of single isocenter even in multiple targets, for example in multiple brain metastases, thereby reducing the overall treatment time.

Tumor Board Opinion

STAR Tumor Board is made up of a 11 member team, with specialists across oncology, radiology, pathology and nuclear medicine. Depending on where the tumor exists, the concerned specialist, gastro (liver cancer), neuro (brain tumor), pulmonologist (lung tumor) etc, is also invited. With each member, bringing on board their expertise, we discuss each case and suggest the best treatment plan for every patient; this may be radiational, medical or surgical.
