advanced radiotherapy in India

Radiotherapy assisted cancer treatment exits for more than a century now and it has become an important specialty in oncology. Indeed, radiotherapy treatment regimes delivered most promising results in curing cancer. However usage of highly radioactive material for radiation and heavily secured OTs to perform any radiotherapy surgery makes it an exclusive procedure. Also high level of precision and expert radiologists is required to provide this treatment.

Sometimes radiotherapy is also combined with other cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or surgery, which vary from case to case.

Advanced radiotherapy procedures adopt a multimodal approach to cure cancer patients. Radiotherapy-assisted cancer therapies account for 40% of the total cancer treatments globally. Radiotherapy Utilization Rate or RTU in India is about 55% in India compared to 50% in western countries. This rate is expected to  grow further in some cases. On the other hand, low and middle income countries this rate id around 25% only due to low availability of radiotherapy machines, as availability of standard radiotherapy machines is crucial to fight cancer.

In developed countries, the radiotherapy utilization rate (RTU, the proportion of cancer patients requiring at least one treatment course of radiotherapy during the evolution of their disease) is approximately 50%. However, in developing countries such as India, it is widely believed that the optimal RTU rate is higher (i.e., >55%) and that it may reach 70%–80% in some situations. However, paradoxically, the actual figures for middle and low income countries (LMICs) are low (nearly 25%), primarily because of unavailability and inaccessibility of radiotherapy machines. Availability of quality and affordable radiotherapy services is therefore a critical requirement for the fight against cancer in countries such as India.
