Odisha overtakes Gujarat in Cyclotron, neither Modi helped nor Mandaviya

Gandhinagar, 9 May 2023
The state government had taken an in-principle decision to provide Rs 70 crore to start the cyclotron project at the Gujarat Cancer and Research Institute. The work will be completed in two years. The radioactive material will be produced under the Cyclotron project. It can be used to diagnose and treat cancer. The establishment of a world-class center in Gujarat can bring many benefits, including the production of radioisotopes used in the field of medicine, the South East Asian Regional Center for Research and Development in the field of nuclear medicine, general science. But the Modi government could not do this.

Even though the Modi government is repeatedly doing injustice to Gujarat, 26 members of the Lok Sabha, 182 MLAs, BJP ministers at the Center, ministers in the BJP government in Gujarat, Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel or BJP state president and MP CR Patil, nothing Can say He cannot become the voice of Gujarat.

Radioactive material may be found. The test per patient will also cost less. Requirement of 1000 square meters of space: 1000 square meters will be required for construction of cyclotron bunker and construction of 5-storey utility building including basement.

The presentation was given by Manoj Agarwal, Additional Chief Secretary, Health Department. Manoj Aggarwal said that due to the current situation, the department of nuclear medicine in the institute does not have its own cyclotron, which benefits only about 4 thousand patients every year.

Some molecules have a half-life of only a few minutes. At present no such investigation is possible in this institute. Now any investigation can be done whenever needed.

The Department of Nuclear Medicine has been around for 28 years. Every year 16 thousand patients can be examined and treated, which is 4 times the current situation. In future, the material can also be supplied to other hospitals or centers of GCRI like Sidhpur, Rajkot and Bhavnagar.

A state-of-the-art ‘Medical Cyclotron Unit’ was established in 2020 at the Tata Memorial Cancer Hospital in Odisha. Where State Government Rs. 150 crore was contributed. This will make Odisha the research and implementation hub of ‘Medical Cyclotron’ in the entire South-East Asia region. will be unique in the entire South East Asia region.

The medical cyclotron unit will produce radioactive isotopes that are used in complex imaging procedures such as PET scans to treat cancer and other diseases. Isotopes have to be imported from Hyderabad, Mumbai and Kolkata. It is effective only for a few hours.

Organized by NISER under the aegis of TeamMCH, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre, Kolkata, Radiation and Isotope Technology Board, Department of Atomic Energy and Atomic Energy Regulatory Board. Health Minister of Gujarat Mansukh Mandaviya may be in the central government, but he has not made such a cyclotron in Gujarat. Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik also approved the provision of funds for the appointment of specialist and super specialist doctors on contract basis in the state capital hospital and BMC hospital.



G.M.E.R.S. Rs 40 crore has been allocated to make model hospital in Medical College and Sola Hospital.

In the meeting, a detailed description of the equipments procured for the excellent performance of the departments including Radiology, Anesthesia, Medicine, General Surgery, Gynaec, Paediatrics, Ophthalmology was also given.

Scientists have detected electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves, which are a form of plasma waves, at the Indian Antarctic station Maitri.
The electromagnetic age is used to describe electromagnetism. A cyclotron in which the strength of the magnetic field increases with the energy of the particles to keep their orbital radius constant.
A cyclotron in which the electric field is maintained at a constant frequency.
