Radiation therapy very effectively kills the cancerous cells in the abdomen. Since the procedure is minimally invasive, it does not require a hospital stay or lengthy medical procedures.
Steps to take before the procedure
The preparation for the radiation treatment begins with X-ray tests or CT scan for accurate clinical assessment. Radiation therapists will mark the exact area for the radiation treatment. These marks are temporary and can be washed later. However, sometimes the marks can be permanent.
What happens during the procedure?
The patient will be made to lie down on a treatment table or couch. A beam of rays will be directed to the marked area of the stomach. Your doctor may also give you certain medications to increase the effect of the therapy. The treatment lasts for several minutes.
Our doctors at Medanta will assist you thoroughly during the recovery period. The process generally does not require a hospital stay. Your doctor will also determine when and how the next session would be done.
We love to hear about our doctors, facilities
and your treatment at Medanta.
