Frequently Asked Questions
Dr. Apoorva specializes in treating various types of cancer, including breast cancer, gynecologic malignancies, and brain tumors, among others. Her expertise encompasses a wide range of oncological conditions.
Dr. Apoorva is proficient in employing advanced radiation technologies such as Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI), Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT), Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS), Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT), and Brachytherapy, ensuring precise and effective treatment for her patients.
APBI is a specialized radiation technique that delivers targeted radiation directly to the tumor site after breast-conserving surgery, typically completing treatment in a shorter duration compared to traditional whole-breast irradiation. This approach reduces treatment time and minimizes radiation exposure to healthy surrounding tissues, resulting in fewer side effects and improved convenience for patients.
SRS is a non-invasive radiation technique that precisely delivers high doses of radiation to small tumors or lesions in the brain or other areas of the body. It is commonly employed for treating brain metastases, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), and certain benign tumors, offering an effective alternative to surgery with minimal impact on surrounding healthy tissue.
SBRT is a highly precise radiation therapy technique that delivers concentrated doses of radiation to tumors in the body, typically completing treatment in just a few sessions. It is frequently used to treat small, localized tumors in organs such as the lung, liver, spine, and prostate, offering excellent tumor control while sparing nearby healthy tissues.
PET-based Radiation Contouring and Planning utilize PET imaging to precisely delineate tumor boundaries and identify areas of active disease. By incorporating this information into treatment planning, radiation oncologists can optimize target coverage and spare healthy tissues, leading to more effective and personalized radiation therapy for cancer patients.
