Types of Radio-Oncology

Radio-Oncology encompasses diverse imaging modalities, including X-rays, CT scans, MRI, ultrasound, and PET scans. These techniques offer detailed insights into the internal structures and functions of the body, aiding in the diagnosis and treatment of various medical conditions.

Imaging and diagnostics

At Rajkot Cancer Hospital, we recognize the paramount importance of early cancer detection for successful treatment outcomes. Leveraging advanced imaging technology, our facility conducts detailed scan analyses, going beyond technical jargon to deliver personalized narratives in our reports. We meticulously integrate your medical history with imaging findings, crafting a clear roadmap for your doctors. Our unwavering commitment is to provide comprehensive and individualized care, ensuring that each patient receives the attention and support needed throughout their cancer journey.

Guided interventions

Our diagnostic services include a range of biopsy procedures tailored to specific areas of concern. CT-guided biopsies are adeptly performed for small, deep-seated lung tumors, extending to cover mediastinal, retroperitoneal, pancreatic, and adrenal tumors. USG-guided biopsies play a crucial role in the evaluation of breast, thyroid, liver, and ovarian tumors, while USG-guided aspirations and pigtail cancer insertions are conducted as needed. For precise diagnosis, transrectal ultrasound guides prostatic biopsies, and transvaginal ultrasound aids in biopsies for female pelvic masses. In the realm of breast health, USG-guided hook wire localization and marker placement are performed for breast masses. Additionally, our facility offers radiofrequency ablation for liver tumors, ensuring a comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment for our patients.

Preventive radiology

Our comprehensive screening services cater to various aspects of health. For breast screening, we employ digital mammography and sonography to ensure a thorough examination. Lung screening involves the use of low-dose CT scans for a comprehensive evaluation, providing detailed insights into pulmonary health. Prostate screening utilizes both abdominal and transrectal ultrasound techniques, allowing for a precise assessment of prostate health. In gynecological screening, we utilize transabdominal and transvaginal ultrasounds, ensuring a comprehensive and detailed assessment of reproductive health. These screening modalities contribute to our commitment to preventive healthcare, offering patients a proactive approach to their well-being.
