Radiation Oncology is an advanced branch of modern cancer treatment, which is painless, incision-less and preventive. The branch deals with the painless cancer treatment by using the high-dose radioactive rays, also known as X-rays. Radiation Oncology, often abbreviated as RT, RTx or XRT, involves the medical use of ionizing radiation to control or kill malignant cells without inflicting a cut in the body. Different types of cancers including Head & Neck, Uterine, Cervix, Breast, Rectal, Lung and many more are treated under Radiation Oncology.
Nuclear Medicine Oncology helps identify tumours and assess the stage of Cancer. These techniques also help in the selection of treatment. Nuclear medicine scanning such as Bone scans and PET (positron emission tomography) scans are painless and usually done as an outpatient procedure at Regency Healthcare.
The state of art Modality PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography) is a type of Nuclear Medicine Imaging. A PET scan uses a small amount of radioactive material called Radiotracers also called Radiopharmaceuticals which measures important body functions, such as cellular metabolism which helps doctors evaluate how well organs and tissues are functioning and may also detect the early onset of disease before other imaging tests can.
CT imaging uses special X-Ray equipment and in some cases contrast material to produce multiple images of the inside of the body. It details about the anatomic information of the body.
PET-CT is a fusion of the PET scans as well as CT scan. This combined scans help pinpoint abnormal metabolic activities and may provide more accurate diagnosis
My partner and I visited the Regency City Clinic in Kanpur following several failed fertility treatments at an earlier fertility clinic for high oestrogen levels. The staff members were very professional and empathetic. The preliminary visit resulted in a gynaecological test, that led to the early diagnosis of a mild ovarian dermoid cyst. Following the removal of the cyst, we were successful in our first IVF trial. I have been blessed with a baby boy 2 months ago. Thank you, Regency!
I was very apprehensive about being diagnosed with painful stones in my kidney. I was afraid of undergoing surgery. After, meeting with renal specialists at Regency, I found out that every stone does not require an operation. With modern techniques of ESWL (Lithotripsy) PCNL & URS, which are non-invasive, I finally got rid of the stones for all times.
I came to Regency Hospital, Kanpur for the treatment of my liver condition. We learned about Regency through friends in my workplace. The team at Regency provided me with top-notch service and personalized attention, much more than I expected. The staff is very helpful and cooperative. I already have and will surely recommend this remarkable health institution to my family and friends in the future.
I had terrible pelvic pain from the last 6-7 months, and that’s when I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts. Thinking and reading about the cysts made me horrified, but I wanted to cure myself as soon as possible. My aunt, being a doctor herself, recommended Regency Hospital for the treatment of my cysts, and I went ahead with her opinion. From one month, I have been regular with my periods, I have no pelvic pain and I have gotten rid of the cysts. Thanks, Regency!

The different stages of cancer help the doctors to classify the severity of cancer. The cancer is assigned a stage ranging from I to IV.
Stage I: The cancer is usually small cancer or tumor that hasn’t grown too deep. It is also called early-stage cancer.
Stage II & III: Tumors in stages II and III have grown larger and have made their way to the lymph nodes.
Stage IV: At this stage, the cancer is called advanced cancer or metastatic cancer. This means cancer has spread to other organs and parts of the body.

Yes, some people have an increased risk of particular types of cancer because they have an inherited gene fault. These faulty genes can be passed on from parent to child. However, being born with one inherited faulty gene doesn’t mean that a person will definitely get cancer. They do have a higher risk of developing particular types of cancer than other people.
