Oral Cancer Detection





History Logs

Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Yamunanagar

Total Budget: $164,931

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment


The estimated cancer prevalence in India is around 2.25 million, with more than 8 lakhs new cases and 5.5 lakhs deaths occurring each year. Many of the cases are not reported because of ignorance or social stigma attached to the disease. Detection of Pre-cancerous conditions of oral / head and neck regions is financially as well as technically easier and more beneficial as compared to cancer treatment.


The model CS 9600 CBCT from Carestream is the latest imaging system which can transform completely the sphere of diagnosis and treatment of all bony and intraosseous diseases including bony invasion in oral cancer.


This will be the first CBCT imaging centers in Distt. Yamuna Nagar, and surrounding District Sirmour, Saharanpur, Panipat, Ambala, Kurukshetra and in adjoining Himachal Pradesh regions. This will benefit the whole population in this part of North India.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
