INTRODUCTION

 
The Radiotherapy department was started in the year 2008 at Govt Mohan Kumaramangalam Medical College and Hospital, Salem. Telecobalt machine (model Theratron Phoenix) was installed in Radiotherapy department on February 2009 for the treatment of cancer patients. It has been more than 10 years since the Telecobalt machine was installed. At present the machine will be replaced by the most advanced Digital Teletherapy system (I.e) TeleCobalt Equinox 80 machine.
Already in the state of art of highly sophisticated Linear accelerator with dual mode (Photon and Electron) and multiple energies has been sanctioned. The Linear accelerator machine provides state of art controls with modern proven technology like 3D CRT, IMRT, IGRT, IMAT, SRS & SRT with numerous time saving features. In the sequence of that, the bunker construction for Linear Accelerator is under process.
