Treatment & Procedures


We are the only centre in Andhra Pradesh to have the most advanced and first of its kind LINAC Machine (Elekta Infinity) and a state-of-the-art Radiation Equipment which helps to deliver highly precise radiation to the tumor with minimal damage to critical organs thereby reducing side effects. The Dual Modality Linear Accelerator provides both photon and electron beams with three different X-ray energies (6, 10 & 15 MV) and six electron energies (4, 6, 8, 10, 12 & 15 MeV).

Elekta infinity has many superior benefits such as:

  • Quick mode treatment delivery with superior dose conformance
  • On Board Imaging (OBI) – for image verification in high precision treatment to reduce set up error before treatment while patient is on couch
  • VMAT capability - Simultaneous and dynamic moment of MLC while rotating the Gantry in combination with varying dose rate, gantry speed and collimator rotation to deliver highly conformal dose
  • A Machine which can deliver all types of radiation technique
  • Less invasive on the point
  • Safer and less painful

Techniques of Radiation available at Manipal Hospital Vijayawada

  • 3D Conformal Radiotherapy (3DCRT)
  • Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT)
  • Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT)
  • Stereotactic Radiotherapy (SRT)
  • Stereotactic Radio Surgery (SRS)
