HCG the First Hospital to Introduce FFF Technology in India
Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India

HealthCare Global Enterprises Ltd, The Specialist in Cancer Care, is the first cancer care network in India, to introduce Flattening Free Filter Mode technology to treat a patient. This was introduced for the first time in India, for a patient diagnosed with prostate cancer at HCG Cancer Center Ahmedabad.

Dr.Vivek Bansal, Director, Radiation Oncology, HCG Cancer Center Ahmedabad, said, "The cancer patients will benefit with the introduction of FFF technology. With FFF dose rates of 2400 (as compared to 600 or below in filtered beam) the beam on time gets reduced by one third to one fourth. This probably is the biggest add on as of today adding to patients comfort and minimizes the effect of movement during treatment or during respiration also. The treatment time in delivering doses will come down from minutes to seconds. The high doses are delivered with precision and accuracy not affecting the normal tissues and thereby reducing the chances of secondary cancers, and optimizing medical outcomes."

Dr. Bharath Ghadvi, CEO, HCG Cancer Center Ahmedabad, said, "We are the first hospital in India to get approval to use the FFF Flattening Free Filter Mode, technology. This is only possible because we are a center of excellence for cancer treatment. The introduction of FFF is to ensure precision and quality of life to the patients."
