Oncology Department – The treatment of cancer undoubtedly requires cross-specialty cooperation, and the Department of Oncology Therapy attaches great importance to communication with various disciplines. The best treatment result for cancer must be that the earlier the cancer, the better the effect. Through the hospital positron imaging examination and dynamic tumor markers, the patient can be tracked early for recurrence.
Features in the department:
1. Image-guided radiotherapy: The
spiral knife combines the concept of image-guided IMRT and the principle of 360° spiral radiation technology. As the treatment bed advances slowly, the treatment machine rotates concentrically to complete the treatment. Each centimeter of the field is treated by IMRT with 51 angles, so no matter the size of the tumor or how many darts there are, the spiral knife can perfectly create a dose distribution. Overcome the factors that directly affect the treatment results such as tumor shrinkage, anatomical structure changes, and treatment posture changes during the treatment process to achieve the protection of normal tissues and the best treatment effect.
2. Personalized cancer treatment: In clinical practice, we see different cancers in the same stage and the same treatment, and there are differences between better and worse results. Based on the molecular marker characteristics of individual tumors, it is possible to distinguish the patient’s prognostic flow and guide the most appropriate treatment mode, which will be the most important treatment rule for cancer in the future.
At present, the undergraduate and related research teams are jointly developing new testing methods to find out the molecular biomarkers of personal cancer, and use this to guide the most suitable treatment.
3. Immune Reconstruction:
Studies have shown that immunity has the effect of strengthening radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Therefore, one of the treatment goals of the undergraduate is to help patients improve their basic immunity, so as to formulate strategies to maintain the patient’s immunity during treatment.
