Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Mumbai has developed Eye Cancer therapy in the form of the first indigenous Ruthenium 106 Plaque for treatment of Ocular Tumours.


  • The handling of plaque is very convenient for the Surgeon and it has been acknowledged to be at par with the international standards.

  • So far the BARC plaques made in India through the Department of Atomic Energy have been used for seven cases for Ocular Cancer.

  • Ocular tumours are tumours inside the eye. They are collections of cells that grow and multiply abnormally and form masses.
