Radiation therapy is a clinical modality dealing with the use of ionizing radiation to treat patients with malignant neoplasm’s and occasionally benign tumors. Cell death is due to DNA damage.

Radiotherapy aims at delivering precise dose of radiation to a defined target volume with the least possible damage to the surrounding normal tissues, resulting in eradication of tumor, good quality of life and improved survival. Patient positioning and immobilization Accurate and reproducible treatment has always been an important aspect of high quality radiotherapy.

Hence a mould room, with a trained technician to make appropriate custom made immobilization devices, is an integral part of Radiation oncology unit. An immobilization device helps to establish and maintain the patient in a fixed well-defined position for every treatment session as well as during a single treatment session.
