Nuclear medicine center opened in Kazan

26 Jun '13
Scientists of the State Federal Center for Nuclear Medicine, which just opened in Tatarstans Kazan, in the mid-Volga area, are applying advanced know-how to identify malignant tumors at early stages, the website of Russias Presidential Council for Economic Modernization and Innovation Development reports.

The new Kazan center can reportedly treat up to 6,000 oncology patients a year. In many cases, therapies require no invasive surgeries. Some of the most advanced technologies that the Tatarstan physicians use to treat cancers enable irradiation of exclusively tumorous tissues, leaving healthy organs and tissues intact.

We can pinpoint nascent two-to-three millimeter metastases at a very early stage and take measures. Or, for example, if treatment monitoring shows no proliferation of a tumor, we take it as a signal that our therapy has worked, and stop applying it in order to preserve the patients health and save government funds, Rustem Khasanov of Tatarstans Oncology Clinic explained to the source.

There are eight such centers across Russia, the source says.
