Computed tomography is the gold standard for recognizing the type of tumors; Magnetic resonance imaging provides high-resolution 3D images. It is also used in surgeries to improve the accuracy of the intervention; The treatment program and prognosis in oncology is based on a biopsy of the tumor tissue.The patient undergoes all examinations within 1-2 days, and receives the results in three days.

EQUIPMENT AND TECHNOLOGIES FOR TREATMENT OF CANCER IN TURKEY
TrueBeam Varian / Elekta / STx Linear accelerator of the latest model, which is used to irradiate tumors. Using TrueBeam cuts the treatment time in half. The radiation is directed at the tumor with millimeter precision. Thus, side effects are minimized. The procedure does not require anesthesia as the radiation is painless. CyberKnife Robotic System The world's first device for non-invasive treatment of tumors anywhere using high doses of radiation. CyberKnife imaging software delivers ultra-precise target doses of radiation and automatically adjusts to tumor movement. Da Vinci robotic system A robot under the control of a doctor, with the help of which low-traumatic operations are carried out through several incisions. The robot is equipped with a video camera and fine cutting tools, and it also does not shake hands. This allows operations to be carried out without complications. After robotic surgery, the patient recovers quickly and, in most cases, retains the functionality of the organ. Gamma Knife This is a radiosurgical unit for the treatment of brain tumors. The irradiation accuracy with the Gamma Knife Elekta system is 0.15 mm, which is 6 times the standard for existing systems. The safety of the procedure is enhanced by the imaging of the Cone Beam CT. Thanks to it, the irradiation stops or decreases if healthy tissue gets under the sight.
