Guwahati: Medica Cancer Hospital has introduced a high-end radiotherapy machine, Halcyon, with Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) & Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), to its considerable bouquet of advanced services offered.
Reports suggest that one in four men and one in five women in the Northeast respectively, are expected to get cancer. To mitigate this lack of proper cancer treatment, Medica Cancer Hospital has implemented the latest inclusion of Halcyon in its treatment centre for cancer not only in the region, but also in neighbouring countries.
“Medica shall bring latest technologies in our cancer hospital here so that people from this region and nearby neighbouring states do not have to travel to other states for treatment. We shall offer all these treatments at an affordable cost which will be beneficial for the people,” said Dr. Sourav Dutta, Director Medica Cancer Hospitals.
“The Halcyon Radiation Therapy system is designed around the patient with the assurance of an enhanced connection, that allows our oncology team to deliver exceptional treatment with increased efficiency in a less intimidating environment that is comfortable and reassuring to the patients,” said Dr. Alok Roy, Chairman Medica Group of Hospitals & Chair FICCI health Services Committee.
“I will urge the citizens not to neglect cancer and get the treatment as early as possible before it gets too late,” added Dr Roy.
The health infrastructure in most North-Eastern states aren’t well equipped to treat the present case load of patients due to which patients are bound to travel long distances for treatment.
Cancer patients often fall prey to illnesses due to a weak immune system, compromised by chemo, radiotherapy and similar treatments. The hospital aims to provide specialised medical care while ensuring that patients are treated in clean surroundings to reduce the risk of further infections.
