Colposcope and Cryosurgery unit
 
We have recently procured a Colposcope along with a cryosurgery unit to strengthen the department of Preventive oncology. Colposcope will be used in the early detection of Cancer of Cervix.
 
 
3D Treatment Planning System
 
Radiation treatment instrumentation. It is useful to plan radiation dose delivery in a most accurate method. This facilitates treating the main target with least damage to adjacent normal tissues. It has been found to be extremely useful in treatment planning of various brachytherapy  procedures, External RT of brain tumors, lung cancer, prostrate cancer, breast cancer, bladder cancer and cancer of  cervix  etc.

Radiotherapy Simulator
 
Mehdi Nawaz Jung Institute of Oncology has acquired a latest Computerized simulator which facilitates treatment planning in Radio Therapy. Treatment field can be marked out exactly as a result of which  radiation induced damage to surrounding normal tissues can be minimized. And at the same time high doses of cancer destructive beams to tumor tissue can be delivered.
 
 
Institute purchased Dual Energy Linear Accelerator
 
This instrument treats cancer using photons (mega voltage x ray) and  electrons as cancer destructive beams. It will be equipped with a multi leaf collimator which increases precision of treatment. As a result of which unwanted side effects like skin, soft tissue and bone reactions can be significantly reduced. This is a highly desirable  aspect in cancer treatment. It is useful in the treatment of   cancer of Prostate, Nasopharynx, Cervix etc. This addition to our Institute also facilitates  Stereo Tactic Radio therapy and Stereo Tactic Radio surgery (X- knife).
