Radiation Oncology Centre
Radiation oncology uses ionizing radiations to control malignant cells as part of cancer treatment in order to transfer radiation to the affected organ in the most accurate and correct way. Devices have been developed, the use of high-dose radiation using these devices, is called ”radiotherapy” often for the purpose of destroying
or softening cancerous tissues.
Radiation Oncology Department, radiation oncologist, medical physician, radiotherapy technician, nurse, dosimeter, psychologist, social worker, dietitian, radiation protection specialist, and patient consultant.
In addition, basic steps in directing therapy such as staging and tumor staging after evaluation are resolved with clinics such as nuclear medicine, radiology, and pathology through a multidisciplinary approach.
Radiotherapy is a therapeutic method that aims to eliminate tumor cells by irradiating the diseased area with radiotherapy devices. Treatments are given in daily sessions and last for several days to weeks. The oncologist decides the duration and form of treatment.
Radiotherapy is applied (radiotherapy – treatment alone or in combination with surgery / chemotherapy for cancer. When radiotherapy is planned and applied by computer-aided planning by a radiation oncologist, success rates increase. Therefore, the combination of technology and the treatment team important in the radiotherapy.
Radiotherapy is a treatment method used for nearly half of all cancer patients today. planning 3-D conformal radiotherapy, radiotherapy effective in treating cancer.
The contribution of technological innovations to radiotherapy:
Radiotherapy is constantly being updated in line with technological developments. Oncology sites can be treated with treatment planning systems without damaging the surrounding organs under the supervision of radiation oncologists. The human factor and technological advances help treat patients in coordination.
As a result of detailed checkup of the diseased area by computerized screening method, it is possible to distinguish between the diseased area and the normal area. In this way, radiotherapy is only applied to the site of the tumor and side effects can be reduced.
A separate treatment for each patient:
Reports and films reviewed by your doctor will evaluate the patient’s treatment plan. This detailed treatment plan prepared by the radiotherapy team provides benefits in treating the disease through controlled treatment practices every day.
What should be paid attention to during the treatment?
Comprehensive Cancer Center
Kent Cancer Center, which makes Kent Hospital an integrated cancer treatment center offering integrated oncology services; New radiation oncology and nuclear medicine clinics offer the most comprehensive treatment in the region.
Interdisciplinary approach of cancer treatment
The most important step that must be taken in this process is to determine the treatment that should be applied to patients by collecting doctors from all disciplines.
Interdisciplinary teams are of great importance to evaluate each patient individually and to develop the correct treatment methods.
Our oncology center, which adopts this approach, aims to increase the patient survival rate in the treatment process as well as the quality of life.
Computerized planning support is used in our clinic’s treatment applications. Treatment planning and implementation is carried out as a team with radiation oncologists, radiation technicians, and radiotherapy technicians.
