True Beam

True Beam

Trooping the device you see right now is one of the best in the world. Its characteristic is that it can perform all radiotherapies such as imrt, standard radiotherapy, and others with the help of true beam. We have the opportunity to apply treatments much faster and much more sensitively compared to other devices. We can track the tumor and the healthy tissues daily and manage all the precision regarding it. It makes possible by a piece of equipment within the device. The most important characteristic of this device is that it gives way to perform very accurate treatments. I mean, we had the mechanisms to protect the surrounding healthy tissues around the tumor. With this device, you can treat any tumor however particularly in prostate cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer particularly brain tumors.

We have significant advantages with the true beam. Especially we have a method called stereotaxis protecting the peripheral area very successfully while applying extremely high doses to a tiny area. Thanks to that high-dose, we have the option to eliminate the tumor. The superiority of true beam technology as compared to gamma knife or CyberKnife is that the true beam can function very very fast while it takes 40 to 50 minutes for the other devices we had. The advantage of making the treatment within 8 to 10 minutes, the human body is moving. If you finalize the procedure within a shorter time, then you get affected by this movement less. Secondly, the patient does not have to stay at the table for long. You know, there is a big difference between laying down for 40 minutes or 10 minutes moreover the small lesions on the brain can be cured in a concise time in bunches. We can cure three to four lesions with a single beam for other devices this period takes much longer, and the more time it takes, the more chances arise for the patient to move or change the position of the body.

From that perspective, it is advantageous since we use very thin fibers. The degradation of the dose is very quick and sharp when it comes to a peripheral area. We apply to the primary tumor area a higher dose. For this reason, as compared to other devices, this is a significant advantage. We do not need to give any painkillers before the operation because during radiotherapy treatment the patient does not feel any pain or discomfort
