About the offer

Radiation therapy is prescribed for the treatment of metastatic thyroid cancer, reducing the likelihood of recurrence of a tumor that has been surgically removed. In some cases, radiation exposure is used for palliative treatment. It is worth mentioning that radiotherapy is a common approach for thyroid cancer after thyroidectomy surgery. Before therapy, the radiation oncologist carefully examines the patient and makes a treatment plan. Unique 3D computer modeling helps outline the malignant tumor and its structures. The radiation dose is selected in such a way as to destroy thyroid cancer tissue effectively but as little as possible to affect healthy structures. Marks are made on the neck of the cancer patient to mark the irradiation zone. The treatment program includes several sessions designed for a specific period. Thyroid cancer is treated on an outpatient basis, five days a week. Before starting the process, the doctor puts the patient under the device according to the treatment scheme. A special fixing mask is used to help the patient maintain immobility of the head and neck. It does not obstruct breathing and vision. The mask is made individually for each patient. The procedure is painless and lasts only a few minutes. The physician controls the irradiation process remotely.
