Department of Medical Physics

Medical Physics is an applied branch of physics concerned with the application of the concepts and methods of physics to the diagnosis and treatment of human disease. The Medical Physics Division is providing comprehensive Physics and Dosimetric services for the treatment of cancer patients and has expertise in related areas. This division is responsible to the radiation protection of the institution.

The Medical Physicist has acquired expertise in all advanced treatment techniques like 3DCRT, IMRT,IMAT,IGRT,SBRT, SRT, SRS,4D Respiratory gating, Brachytherapy etc.


The essential responsibility of Medical Physicist’s clinical practice is to assure the safe and effective delivery of radiation to achieve therapeutic result as prescribed in patient care. The Division services are Dosimetric treatment planning, Commissioning of new radiation generating equipments and Treatment planning systems, calibration of radiation monitoring instruments, QA and maintenance of treatment machines, Verification of Radiation dose delivery, Radiation Safety, room designing, and compliance with radiation safety regulator (AERB).

The Division also advises and assists allied departments like Diagnostic Radiology, Nuclear Medicine and blood bank (GIC) regarding matters of Radiation safety, Radiation source procurement, radiation waste disposal ,Operating licences of the radiation generating equipments, Monitoring of personal dosimetry services and compliance with regulatory authority (AERB).

The efforts of the Division are comprised of Research, Education, Internships and Practical training designed to guide Radiation oncologists, Medical Physicists and Radiotherapy Technologists.

Medical Physics division is equipped with state of art facility. Details of equipments are:
