Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, who is leading a parliamentary delegation to Mongolia, on Thursday inaugurated operationalisation of the BHABHATRON II radiotherapy machine donated by for treatment, an official statement said.

Speaking on the occasion, Mahajan hoped that this cutting-edge technology would serve the needy in Mongolia, which would further consolidate the already healthy and warm relationship between the two countries, said a statement.

The machine, installed in National Centre of Mongolia in capital Ulan Bator, has been indigenously developed by Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC). Having efficient performance parameters and improved user interface, its lower power consumption and battery back-up makes it suitable for rural and far-flung areas, it said.
