Scientists develop '3D robotic motion phantom' for lung cancer

Indian scientists developed a three dimensional robotic motion phantom to help human lung motion.


Cancer has been one of the major causes of death around the world. Currently, no such proper medication has been developed to stop it's effect.


However, Indian scientists have tried to work and hence, have developed a three dimensional robotic motion phantom which is going to help human lung motion for delivering focused radiation in cancer patients.


Ashish Dutta, Professor at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, along with Professor K. J. Maria Das, Professor from Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS), Lucknow, developed the programmable phantom device using funds under the 'Make in India' initiative supported by Government of India's Advanced Manufacturing Technologies programme of the Department of Science and Technology (DST).


As breathing issues are also one of the problematic things faced by the cancer patients, in such cases these will help in providing the person affected simulated lung movement so that the delivery of radiation is clean and turns effective in the minimum amount of dosage.


The robotic motion developed not only can copy the heartbeats but also that the radiation is working on the target where it is supposed to be.
