The most common treatments available in the field of oncology are: surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and focused (biological) treatment.
As a result of developments in technology, there are certain conditions in oncology that can be treated with different topical treatments, such as use using catheters that reaches directly to the tumor. With increasing minimally invasive oncology procedures being performed in the angio suite, interventional oncology is now the fastest growing field in interventional radiology.
Treating tumors with new technologies that focus on the tumor alone, can improve patient quality of life by reducing side effects.
Optional treatment techniques that we are bringing to the Israeli market:
Targeted and local destruction of a tumor mass.
The ablation technique is designed to destroy a spot tumor; The treatment is done for tumors in the liver, kidneys, bones and lymph nodes, prostatitis and more.
The technique is suitable for the treatment of small metastases or small primary tumors, usually less than 4 cm (when it is not possible to operate for various reasons). The treatment can be used on the spot by delivering energy by microwaves, radio waves, or electricity.
Non-surgical operation in which catheterization is performed in order to inject particles (blood-blocking substances) into the tumor and thus block the blood flow to the tumor, in order to reduce or destroy it.
Chemotherapy can be added to the particles (chemo-embolization), or a radioactive substance (radio-embolization, also called SIRT) in order to achieve a high spot concentration of the substance with a tiny dispersion of the drug in other organs.
Embolization is the treatment of malignancies in various organs such as: liver, kidney and more. The technique is particularly effective in cases of both primary and metastatic liver tumors.
RFA- Radio Frequency Ablation
Procedure that can treat tumors in the lung, liver, kidney, bone, and other body organs. Once the diagnosis of tumor is confirmed, a needle-like RFA probe is placed inside the tumor. The radiofrequency waves passing through the probe increase the temperature within tumor tissue, and destruct the tumor. RFA can be used with small tumors, whether these arose within the organ (primary tumors) or spread to the organ (metastases).
