oncocare.in Each patient will meet with the radiation oncologist for a consultation and physical examination to discuss options and benefits of radiation therapy treatments. A comprehensive exam and past family/medical history will help determine correct options for Cancer Treatment in India. If radiation therapy treatment is pursued, patients will then be set up with a simulation appointment. At this appointment, a CT scan will be performed for treatment planning. This is similar to a regular CT scan except that we’ll use an immobilization device (such as a mask, mold, or bean-bag type bag) that will allow us to develop exact positioning throughout your course of radiation therapy. Small tattoos may also be placed on the skin to guide your radiation therapy team to ensure proper setup each day.
Next, the dosimetrist, a member of your Radiation Oncology, will review your information and design a custom treatment plan which will outline the precise location of treatment. The dosimetrist works very closely with the radiation oncologist to deliver your treatment plan in the best way possible.
Before your Radiation Therapy Treatments in India begin, you will come back for one more verification or “dry run” day. This day is very similar to what your treatment will be like but no radiation treatment will be delivered. Your radiation therapists will show you the treatment console area, describe what to expect, and set you up on the treatment table. Films will be taken to ensure proper positioning and drawings may be made for your medical records.
