One out of every 7 people is at risk of developing cancer at some point in their life. On this situation; Hereditary changes in genes, diet, various viruses and bacteria, chemical agents such as asbestos and benzene, environmental and genetic factors such as radiation from radioactive materials and sunlight, hormones and immune system play an important role. However, cancer is a disease that can be treated with early diagnosis and correct treatment methods.

High success in all cancer types

Cancer, which is seen as the second life-threatening factor right after cardiovascular diseases in the world and in Turkey, is a health and life problem with an increasing frequency. Cancer is a group of malignant diseases that occur as a result of uncontrolled proliferation and growth of cells that have been changed by some effects, both locally and at distant points. The most frequently occurring cancers in Turkey are lung, prostate, large intestine, rectum, stomach and pancreas in men; breast in women,  thyroid, large intestine, lung, rectum, cervix, ovary, stomach and pancreas. The disease requires a long-term treatment process and early diagnosis is vital in the success of treatment.

Systemic treatments such as chemotherapy and immunotherapy are applied after surgery and radiotherapy, which are local treatment methods. Since chemotherapy is performed with cytotoxic drugs, it should be done by experts in the field, in effective doses, but by protecting the patient from side effects.

Advanced diagnostic and imaging systems

With the new technology devices developed, tumors that have spread throughout the body can now be detected instantly. This also facilitates the selection of the most appropriate treatment option for the individual. In the Department of Nuclear Medicine, PET-CT, which is a highly advanced imaging method and an effective technology in tumor scanning of the whole body, is used today. The device, which has Ultra HD image quality, provides a much clearer image in a wider area, allowing you to follow the smallest details that may be overlooked. PET-CT; It is used in tumor diagnosis, staging, evaluation of response to treatment and radiotherapy planning.

Latest generation radiation therapy technology

In the majority of cancer patients, radiotherapy is required at the stage of diffuse disease before, after or during the follow-up of the patients. For some types of cancer, radiotherapy is the only treatment. Thanks to the developments in the field of radiotherapy in recent years, only the diseased tissue can be irradiated and the damage to healthy tissues can be minimized. 

High dose irradiation to the determined focus

TrueBeam STx system; Robotic imaging uses many technical innovations with fully reconstructed control features to dynamically synchronize motion management and therapy. TrueBeam STx has features that can combine irradiation that hits the treatment focus better with accurate target superiority, high-performance treatment process, short-term treatment by using time advantage, and radiotherapy and radiosurgery options for patient comfort. Another of the most important features of TrueBeam STx technology is its ability to perform targeted, very high dose stereotactic body radiotherapy (0SBRT), which can rapidly apply to a single focus. In this way, high doses of radiotherapy, called ablative doses, can be applied rapidly to certain foci and can perform effective treatment in a single or a few days. Patients can complete their treatment in a few days with SBRT, which can be applied especially in painful bone metastases, vertebrae with the risk of collapse, that is, metastases of the vertebrae forming the spine, and brain metastases.

Patient comfort is at the forefront with Elekta Versa HD

Elekta Versa HD prevents the most accurate calculation of the doses given to the patient during treatment and prevents damage to healthy organs. The structure of Elekta Versa HD, which has five times less leakage dose permeability among linear accelerators, also protects healthy organs and minimizes the risk of secondary cancer formation. The device's "High dose rate" mode provides a maximum dose rate three times higher than previous generation linear accelerators. Versa HD shortens the treatment time with its high dose rate application option, while increasing the success rate. Versa HD also; It provides a comfortable and safe treatment environment with its new ergonomic features, softer, modern contours. The device also significantly increases patient comfort with its low mechanical noise and ambient lighting effects.

Cancer surgery with small incision methods

He evaluates his patients in the oncology council before the surgical procedure that is planned to be applied in cancer treatment. The treatment decisions of the patients are in line with the common opinions of the physicians participating in the council; It is determined by considering the age, medical and psychosocial status, wishes and expectations of the person. Today, thanks to the developments in modern medicine, large incisions are no longer needed in the application of cancer surgery. The procedure can be performed with closed methods, with advances in laparoscopic and robotic surgeries. Patients treated with laparoscopic cancer surgery, especially in branches such as general surgery, urology, and obstetrics, can regain their health in a short time and return to their daily lives.
