    Apollo Hospitals Group in Hyderabad has introduced the ZAP-X Gyroscopic Radiosurgery Platform, a cutting-edge technology for treating brain tumors. This marks a significant milestone as the first in South Asia to offer this innovative treatment option.

    The ZAP-X technology provides a non-invasive and pain-free alternative for patients with brain tumors, with treatment sessions lasting just 30 minutes. This advanced system delivers precise radiation to the targeted tumor while minimizing exposure to healthy brain tissue, ensuring better patient outcomes and comfort.

    Unlike traditional methods, ZAP-X utilizes a self-shielded, gyroscopic linear accelerator design to direct radiation beams from multiple angles, avoiding critical structures like the brain stem and optic nerves. This reduces the risk of cognitive impairment and enhances the effectiveness of the treatment.
