The Radio Diagnosis & Imaging Department at Dr. B Borooah Cancer Institute (BBCI) in Guwahati plays a crucial role in the comprehensive cancer care provided by the institute. The department focuses on utilizing advanced imaging techniques to aid in the diagnosis, staging, treatment planning, and follow-up of cancer patients. Here are some more details about the department:

Advanced Imaging Techniques: The department employs state-of-the-art imaging technologies to provide accurate and detailed information about cancer. These techniques include Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Ultrasound, Digital Memmography Machine, Digital Radiography and Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography (PET-CT). These advanced imaging modalities enable the visualization of internal structures, organs, and tissues in great detail, allowing for precise evaluation and assessment of cancer.


Diagnosis and Staging: The primary focus of the department is to assist in the diagnosis of cancer by providing imaging studies that help identify the presence of tumors, determine their location, and assess their characteristics. Additionally, the department plays a crucial role in staging cancer, which involves determining the extent and spread of the disease within the body. Accurate staging is essential for developing an appropriate treatment plan.


Treatment Planning: The Radio Diagnosis & Imaging department collaborates closely with other medical specialties, including medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists and pathologists, to develop comprehensive treatment plans for cancer patients. Imaging findings are used to determine the most effective treatment strategies, including surgical interventions, radiation therapy, and systemic treatments such as chemotherapy or targeted therapy.

Follow-up and Monitoring: After treatment, the department continues to provide imaging services for the ongoing monitoring and surveillance of cancer patients. Follow-up imaging studies help assess treatment response, detect potential recurrence or metastasis, and guide further management decisions. This ensures that patients receive timely interventions and appropriate adjustments to their treatment plans.

Multidisciplinary Approach: The department adopts a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care. Radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and surgical oncologists work collaboratively to review and interpret imaging findings, discuss cases in multidisciplinary tumor boards, and provide integrated care to patients. This team-based approach ensures comprehensive evaluation and personalized management for each patient.

Patient Care and Safety: The Radio Diagnosis & Imaging department prioritizes patient care and safety. They adhere to strict quality assurance protocols and follow radiation safety guidelines to minimize risks associated with imaging procedures. The department strives to create a comfortable and supportive environment for patients, providing clear explanations, addressing concerns, and ensuring the highest standards of care.

Overall, the Radio Diagnosis & Imaging department at Dr. B Borooah Cancer Institute in Guwahati serves as a vital component of the comprehensive cancer care provided by the institute. By utilizing advanced imaging techniques, collaborating with other specialties, and focusing on patient-centered care, the department contributes significantly to improving the diagnosis, treatment, and overall outcomes for cancer patients.
