  • General Information about the department (Summary about the milestones of the Department ,academic facilities, research facilities, staff, various courses and services provided by the department)
  • The department of radiotherapy in Victoria was inaugurated by the then Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastry on 23 January 1965. The Telecobalt machine was a gift from the Canadian Government to this department. It is the first radiotherapy center in Karnataka. The First Deep X ray therapy unit was used here. Radium was used here for brachytherapy procedures. Post graduate courses started in 1973.
    The development of the department has been stand still since its inauguration even though the technological developments during the past decade have resulted in significant improvements in Radiotherapy technology. In view of these developments, it has become imperative that our centre is modernized to provide the latest and best care to the poor patients who are the bulk of our patients in par with other cancer treatment facilities in the country.
