United Hospital has acquired the first PET-CT and cyclotron in Bangladesh and also offers treatments using a Varian GammaMed® HDR (high dose rate) brachytherapy afterloader.

United Hospital is a private, 450-bed multi-disciplinary hospital designated as a referral hospital by the Bangladesh government.

Dr. Basu brings clinical expertise from the Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai, India, while chief medical physicist Mr. Karthick Raj Mani previously worked at the SGPGI in Lucknow, India.

"We are honoured to be associated with this wonderful new facility serving the people of Bangladesh," says Rolf Staehelin, Varian's international marketing director. "There are huge challenges facing cancer treatment in Bangladesh, with many patients travelling to Singapore and India for treatment, and we hope RapidArc at United will play its part in starting to address the country's extensive cancer burden."

According to recently published reports there are currently over one million people with cancer in Bangladesh, with approximately 200,000 new cases being reported annually and approximately 150,000 deaths associated with the disease.
