Dr. Sapna Nangia specialises in the treatment of cancer using modern radiotherapy techniques that deliver radiation accurately and protect normal organs from the ill effects of radiation. She has been an observer at Memorial Sloane-Kettering Cancer Centre (MSKCC), New York (USA), Moores Cancer Centre, USCD, San Diego (USA) and Albert Einstein-Montefiore Cancer Centre, New York (USA) over the years.
Dr Nangia has established the Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) program, and has acquired vast experience in the use of IMRT; she has published data in the use of IMRT for cancers of the head & neck and prostate.
