Diagnostic Services at HCG Cancer Centre, Jaipur
PET-CT: PET-CT is a molecular imaging technique that offers information on both anatomical and metabolic changes. This information helps specialists in providing better treatment support. As a comprehensive diagnostic modality in cancer care, PET-CT imaging supports diagnosis, staging/restaging, therapy planning and monitoring.
MRI Scan: MRI scans are used to produce detailed images of internal organs, such as the brain, spine, prostate, uterus, and liver, among others. When a doctor suspects an abnormal growth, he/she may recommend an MRI scan. MRI scans can reveal the existence of both benign and potentially dangerous tumours throughout the body.
Mammography: Mammography is a screening method used for breast cancer detection. Low-dose X-rays are used to examine the breast for the signs of benign or malignant tumours.
X-Ray: X-ray scans help in the detection of structural abnormalities within the body. These scans help in the detection of lung, stomach and kidney cancers.
Ultrasound Scan: If swelling, pain or any other symptoms are present, an ultrasound scan is recommended. This scan gives thorough information about the functioning of numerous internal organs as well as any anomalies that may exist.
In addition, we have an in-house laboratory that provides diagnostic services such as biochemistry, haematology, clinical pathology and cytology, allowing our patients to receive prompt diagnostic support.
Treatment at HCG Cancer Centre, Jaipur
Treatments for cancer are usually multimodal; this approach improves the treatment response and survival rates for the patients.
We have critical cancer treatment techniques like surgery, radiation therapy, systemic medicines like chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and immunotherapy, nuclear medicine, and bone marrow transplantation all under one roof at HCG Cancer Centre, Jaipur.
Multiple studies have reported that 80% of cancer patients may require radiation therapy as one of their cancer treatments during their treatment course. This makes radiation therapy one of the main pillars of cancer treatment.

Prostate cancers, gynaecological malignancies such as cervical and endometrial cancers, head and neck cancers, rectal cancers and other cancers can be treated with brachytherapy.
One of the most important cancer therapy options is surgery. Surgical procedures may aid in the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of a variety of cancers.

These systemic therapies use various mechanisms to destroy the cancer cells and help patients lead a better life after the treatment. Systemic therapies are often combined with other treatment modalities for enhanced efficacy of the overall treatment.
Palliative Care / End of Life Care
Palliative care aims to improve the quality of life for patients with terminal illness. Palliative care is available to cancer patients at any moment, from the onset of the disease through the end of the treatment. Palliative care focuses on managing cancer-related symptoms, such as pain or other discomfort, and assisting patients in achieving a relatively better quality of life. While delivering palliative care, we consider the hardships of both the patients and their caregivers and ensure to provide a humane and dignified end to the patient’s suffering.
