Dharamshila Hospital And Research Centre (DHRC) houses the most powerful and precise tools for Diagnosing and Treating Cancer. Dharamshila offers the most advanced and comprehensive technology in the fight against cancer. The most sophisticated technologies used for diagnosing cancer at Dharamshila Hospital are HD PET CT scanner with LSO Crystal Technology, Gamma Camera (Nuclear Scans), CT Scans, MRI, Digital Mammography, High end Ultrasound machines, Dexa Scans etc.
Dharamshila Hospital was the first hospital in the North India to offer VMAT Radiation Technology, which delivers IMRT, IGRT, SRS, SRT and SBRT and provide personalized, safe and high quality radiation which selectively radiates tumors while protecting surrounding healthy tissue. DHRC also provides other minimally invasive cancer treatment therapies like chemoembolization, radiofrequency ablation (RFA), cryoablation and Brachytherapy (Internal Radiation Therapy).
Dharamshila Hospital is the first cancer hospital of India to start bone marrow transplantation with half HLA matched donors. This requires Magnetic Separation of Cells using MACS Technology, NK Cell & mesenchymal cell cultures and cellular therapy.
VMAT is a new Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) treatment technique that combines the fully digital linear accelerator, 3D volumetric imaging, and advanced treatment planning expertise. This powerful trio delivers focussed radiation in shortest time with minimum dose to the targeted organ, sparing the surrounding critical organs and normal healthy tissues, ensuring safety of patients and the treating team. Dharamshila Cancer Hospital is the first hospital in North India to install this latest technology for the benefit of people. Read More
Technologically advanced Linear Accelerator with amorphous silicon portal imaging and dynamic multileaf collimator can deliver Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) precisely targeting higher tumoricidal dose to the tumour at the same time keeping the radiation dose lower to the near by normal / critical organs.
MRI is the short for magnetic resonance imaging, in this technology with the use of magnetic and radio waves, a comprehensive & detailed cross-sectional images are produced of the inside of the body. As there is no use of x-rays, there is no exposure to radiation.
North India’s first PET CT with world’s first HD PET platform and 16 slice CT is the latest armament in our fight against cancer. It has exclusive technologies like High Definition PET, True Volume (which increases PET field of view by an eye opening 33% in the axial dimension). High resolution, LSO Crystal, Pico-3D, True and Sureview. All these features increase our ability to detect changes in molecular activity before anatomical changes.
Eighteen channels HDR Brachytherapy with Microselectron and treatment control station (TCS) is used for Brachytherapy of Gynaecological Cancers, Esophageal Cancer and interstitial implants of Breast, Head and Neck and Pelvis. It is supported by world’s best treatment planning systems for Brachytherapy.
Nuclear medicine imaging forms an important complement of current imaging technologies and plays a useful role in oncology. The advantage of nuclear medicine is functional imaging compared to purely static imaging in conventional x-rays, CT, etc. Bone scans, thyroid scans, renal scanning, scintimammography and various other investigations can be carried out using this camera. Gamma Camera is a very important tool for staging work up. It helps the treating consultant to plan the desired modality of treatment.
SOMATOM Scope 32 Slice delivers crystal clear images across a wide range of clinical applications with sub-millimeter isotropic accuracy. The high-performance UFC (Ultra Fast Ceramics) detector material, it delivers bright, crisp images. Plus, Siemens′ breakthrough Iterative Reconstruction in Image Space (IRIS) accelerates reconstruction while reducing image noise by up to 25% thus maximizing patient safety with minimizing dose, in particular for sensitive groups such as children or people requiring multiple follow-up scans.
Focused on clinical excellence SOMATOM Scope supports perfect balance between the right dose and image quality.
The new analog mammography system Mammomat Select is designed to deliver high quality breast Imaging with excellent comfort to patients .It is equipped with a touchscreen that guides clinical personnel through the screening process thanks to simple and intuitive operation. The system also supports isocentric movement. The height of the detector does not need to be reset between each imaging phase, which reduces the time needed for patient screening. To optimally support clinical personnel in setting the dose, Mammomat Select is equipped with the OpDose application. This functionality enables that the radiation dose can be individually set for each patient – without compromising excellent image quality. The appropriate parameters can be selected in accordance with the patient′s breast size and density.
The State of the art Colour Doppler Ultrasound machine equipped with a variety of digital transducers each having multifrequency capability.
High Resolution Imaging: High frequency transducers with high speed digital electronics produce images with very high resolution (up to 0.3 mm).
Philips exclusive PureWave crystal technology is clinically proven to improve penetration in difficult-to-image patients. PureWave crystals are the result of a manufacturing technique that creates a near-perfect atomic level arrangement. The uniformity and lack of grain boundaries help transfer energy with up to 85% greater precision and efficiency over conventional materials. Their extended bandwidth covers the frequency range of two transducers, with improved Doppler performance and highly sensitive harmonic imaging
