The division has a dedicated team of professionals to provide integrated cancer care using the state of the art equipment. It is equipped with India’s first Infinity Linear Accelerator with Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) and Synergy -S with beam modulator and SRS facilities. The Integrated Brachytherapy Unit from Nucletron is a first for northern part of India and is capable of treating patients with low dose rate seed implants as well as high dose rate brachytherapy. Dr Kataria has been instrumental in commissioning, the latest techniques of stereotactic radiation with micro multi leaf collimation, whole body stereotactic radiotherapy (SBRT), Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT), Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT)and 3-D Conformal Radiation (3D CRT), PET-CT, MRI, SPECT, DSA and CT-Simulator fusion for treatment planning. Prior to this, she had been instrumental in starting the Department of Radiation Oncology at Artemis Health Institute in 2007 and Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute in 1996.
