Remote irradiation with cancer

Cancer is a serious oncological disease, from which doctors are looking for medicine around the world. The principle of radiation oncology treatment of oncology is widely used because it detrimental to living cells. For therapeutic purposes, radiation is used only purposefully, so it does not have such destructive effects on healthy cells. In modern medical practice, two types of radiation exposure are most often used: brachytherapy and external irradiation.

Remote irradiation with cancer

Before irradiation, an MRI or CT of the affected organ is necessarily performed to ensure that the tumor is targeted. Special programs allow you to recreate a three-dimensional picture of the tumor, which allows you to direct radiation rays directly to the cancerous formation. Modular radiation therapy is a unique opportunity to direct intensive doses of radiation directly to a sore spot and reduce the dose of radiation when directing rays to healthy tissues. Proton radiation makes it even better to simulate the power of radiation, delivering it to the affected organ, but this method is not available in all clinics. Regardless of the type of radiation therapy, remote irradiation with cancer is performed every day except for weekends for seven to eight weeks outpatient.

Brachytherapy

Remote radiation therapy is an excellent tool for some localizations. It practically does not give complications, however, the defeat of neighboring tissues of organs with certain diseases, for example, with prostatitis can be quite high. Thus, radiation cystitis and proctitis are manifested, as well as radiation ulcers. Taking into account the above facts, oncologists have developed a fundamentally new method that makes irradiation with cancer minimally safe for neighboring organs and tissues. The principle of brachytherapy is based on the effect of radiation rays not from the outside, but from within the tumor. Consider, for example, prostate cancer, how brachytherapy affects the tumor. With the help of a special needle, the grain of radioactive iodine, the half-life of which is 60 days, is introduced into the prostate. In this case, irradiation of the affected organ takes place from the inside, this allows to carry out irradiation with cancer, this avoids additional irradiation of healthy tissues and organs.

What is the use of radiation?

Radiation irradiation of blood contributes to the destruction of living cells, with cancer cells dying much faster than healthy cells. In addition, diseased cells do not have the ability to recover, in contrast to healthy cells. Radiation irradiation avoids the spread of cancer cells and prevents the occurrence of metastases. With its help, you can reduce pain symptoms, reduce the risk of bleeding, improve breathing, reduce the risk of bone fractures( with bone cancer), reduce the compression that the tumor has on the spinal cord and brain. The tactics of treating a cancerous tumor will mainly depend on the clinical stage of the tumor, on the general condition of the patient and on his age. Basically, for treatment, combined therapy is used, in which, after surgical treatment, irradiation or chemotherapy is used.

What is VLOK?

Currently, for the treatment of tumors, VLOK - intravenous laser irradiation of blood is often used, it is a method of photobiological influence on blood cells. It allows you to maximally irradiate all cells of the blood with a beam of red light. The energy of this light activates the enzyme and immune metabolism in every blood cell, thus activating all the basic cellular functions.

Radiation irradiation with cancer gives an excellent effect, every patient with this serious diagnosis should know.
