KSSSCI is offering treatment to various beneficiaries such as PMJAY (AYUSHMAN), CM Relief Fund, PM Relief Fund, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Government Employee Treatment Scheme, etc. Currently, about 120 patients are receiving radiation therapy daily at KSSSCI.

The Kalyan Singh Super Specialty Hospital (KSSSCI) in Lucknow has unveiled a new 4D-CT simulator machine to treat cancerous tumours. This initiative aims to provide precise treatment for tumours that move with respiration.

The newly launched tech will help in the accurate mapping and treatment of moving tumours, enhancing the effectiveness of cancer treatment and potentially improving patient outcomes.

Further, the 4D-CT simulator can track the movement of these tumours and deliver radiation therapy more precisely, leading to better treatment outcomes and fewer side effects for patients.

Prof RK Dhiman, director of KSSSCI, said "The precise localisation aids in planning radiation therapy for cases where very large doses are administered in very few fractions. This has now become the standard of care in mam tumours like liver cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, etc."

This technique will now be used for the benefit of common people who come to KSSSCI with the hope of state-of-the-art radiation therapy within their reach.

Dhiman mentioned that KSSSCI is offering treatment to various beneficiaries such as PMJAY (AYUSHMAN), CM Relief Fund, PM Relief Fund, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Government Employee Treatment Scheme, etc. Currently, about 120 patients are receiving radiation therapy daily at KSSSCI.

The Kalyan Singh Super Specialty Hospital, also known as the Kalyan Singh Super Specialty Cancer Institute & Hospital, is a prominent institution under the aegis of the Government of Uttar Pradesh. KSSSCI aims to provide state-of-the-art cancer treatment facilities.

It offers a complete range of clinical services for cancer patients, including end-of-life care, under one roof. The hospital is committed to delivering accessible and affordable molecular diagnostics, revolutionising cancer care practices.

In August this year, KSSSCI Joined hands with Karkinos Healthcare and IIT Kanpur to provide better cancer care with the launch of CAMDRC in Lucknow. This initiative reflects the shift toward molecular diagnostics in cancer care, enabling personalised treatments through genetic insights for improved patient outcomes.

Days back, the UP government sanctioned INR 7134.90 Lakh to digitise five hospitals including KSSSCI in its pilot run. This initiative aims to promote accountable, effective, and transparent operations, making day-to-day hospital functions more efficient. Tasks like searching for files and documents will require less time, ensuring greater transparency and reducing the chances of files going missing.
