Steps to be taken before Tomotherapy
You will be asked to follow specific diet prior to the procedure. You may also be advised to stop or avoid certain medication. Our team of doctors will guide you through the process and will make sure you stay stress-free during the procedure.
What happens during the procedure?
The surgery starts with the scanning of the treatment area using 3D imaging. It is very important to have accurate clinical measurements so that damage to normal cells is minimal. A thin beam of radiation is made to rotate around the body and enter from different directions to kill the tumour cells. A computer processor will monitor the delivery of radiation rays at the pre-determined intensity, at any given point of time.
Your doctor at Medanta will provide you with all the post-procedure instructions. You may need extra rest while your tissues heal and regenerate. Be gentle with your skin in the treatment area as it takes time to heal. You might have to visit your doctor a few times post therapy to monitor the results of the therapy.
