Welcome to the esteemed Department of Radiation Oncology at the prestigious Gujarat Cancer and Research Institute, where cutting-edge technology meets unparalleled expertise. Renowned as one of the busiest and most advanced departments in India, we provide unrivalled radiotherapy services to approximately 400 patients every day.

Our department boasts state-of-the-art facilities and operates under the meticulous supervision of our experienced faculty, ensuring the highest standards of care for our patients. With a commitment to providing standardized and evidence-based treatment, we cater to the needs of patients from across India and SAARC countries, all at affordable costs. We take pride in offering advanced treatments such as IGRT (Image-Guided Radiotherapy) and SRS (Stereotactic Radiotherapy) at low or no cost, setting us apart as a beacon of compassionate and comprehensive care.

Our motto is to provide individualized care to each and every patient, and we work in close coordination with other branches of oncology, such as surgical oncology, medical oncology, pathology, radiology, palliative medicine, physiotherapy and dieticians to ensure a holistic approach to cancer care.

In addition to our cutting-edge facilities, we provide indoor services for patients who require close medical attention or come from faraway places for their treatment. Our experienced faculty conducts daily rounds and provides meticulous medical management, supported by our dedicated nursing staff, ensuring the utmost comfort and care for our patients.

Furthermore, we take pride in our commitment to education and training. Our department offers training services to resident doctors, medical physicists, technologists, and nursing staff, providing specialized care that is unmatched in the field. Several doctors obtain their MD in Radiation Oncology from our esteemed institution, making us a hub of excellence in education and research.

At the Department of Radiation Oncology, we believe that every patient deserves the best possible care and treatment. Our multidisciplinary team of radiation oncologists, medical physicists, dosimetrists, and radiation therapists work collaboratively to develop customized treatment plans for each patient, considering their unique needs and medical condition. We follow strict quality assurance protocols to ensure the accuracy and safety of our treatments, providing our patients with the utmost confidence and peace of mind.

In conclusion, the Department of Radiation Oncology at Gujarat Cancer and Research Institute stands at the forefront of cutting-edge radiotherapy services, combining advanced technology, unmatched expertise and compassionate care to provide the most comprehensive and effective cancer treatment available. With a commitment to excellence in patient care, education, and research, we are a beacon of hope for cancer patients seeking the best possible care for their journey towards healing.

Brachytherapy- Iridium (Microselectron HDR), Cobalt (Flexitron)

Facilities Activities :

3D Conformal Radiotherapy

  • Advanced technique that uses multiple beams of radiation to precisely shape the radiation field
  • Matches the shape of the tumor, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue
  • Provides better tumor coverage and reduced side effects compared to conventional radiotherapy
  • It is commonly employed in treatment of breast, thoracic and gynaecologic malignancies

IMRT (Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy):---

  • Delivers varying intensity of radiation beams to different parts of the tumor
  • Precisely shapes the radiation dose to conform to the shape of the tumor
  • Minimizes radiation to nearby healthy tissue, reducing side effects
  • It is commonly used in treatment of tumor of head-neck, brain, lung, pelvis etc

IGRT (Image-Guided Radiation Therapy):

  • Uses on board imaging technology such as CBCT to guide the delivery of radiation therapy
  • Provides real-time imaging of the tumor position and adjusts the radiation field accordingly
  • Increases accuracy and reduces errors in targeting the tumor
  • It is commonly utilized in treatment of malignancy of prostate, head-neck etc.

VMAT/RAPIDARC (Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy/Rapid Arc):

  • Delivers radiation in continuous arcs around the patient
  • Uses advanced software to precisely control the intensity and shape of the radiation beam
  • Reduces treatment time and increases patient comfort


  • Combines technology IMRT with CT scanning to deliver radiation in a helical pattern
  • Provides 3D image guidance and precise radiation delivery
  • Minimizes radiation to healthy tissue and reduces side effects
  • It is especially useful in certain treatments such as cranio-spinal irradiation (CSI), total body irradiation (TBI) etc.

Stereotactic Radiotherapy:

  • Delivers high doses of radiation with extreme precision to small tumors or lesions
  • Requires specialized equipment and techniques
  • Used for treating brain tumors (metastases, schwanommas, vascular malformations neuralgia etc.), lung tumors, liver tumors, and other small tumors


  • Robotic system that delivers highly precise radiation to tumors- Stereotactic treatments (SRS, SRT, FSRT, SBRT, SABR, etc.)
  • Uses real-time imaging to track tumor movement and adjusts radiation delivery accordingly
  • Non-invasive and used for treating tumors in various locations in the body
  • GCRI is the only Government institute to offer this treatment.


    • Gynaecological malignancies- ICBT, ISBT, Cylinder- Conventional, CT guided, MRI guided
    • Head & Neck
    • Breast
    • Soft tissue sarcomas
    • Mould brachytherapy
    • Esophagus- intraluminal
