The Civilchoy Radiation Center was recently activated. It is located at 171 Vicente Loveira Street and is intended for oncological treatment with radiotherapy. The building is built according to all relevant standards and qualifications.
Dr. Mario Dinucci is the Medical Director of the Center and, in dialogue with LA RAZON, claims that the machine we are integrating is a state-of-the-art linear accelerator with two types of energy, electrons and photons. You can perform all kinds of modern, high-precision radiation treatments, which, using computers and images, produce very precise treatment to radiate exactly where the radiation will be applied and not touch any of them. other organs or tissues that may be damaged. It seems very easy to say, from a technological point of view, it is complicated.
We are proud to have installed this center in an area that required this technique. This is a cobalt-based radiotherapy center a long time ago, but it has stopped working, he said, adding that we plan to serve an area of nearly 400,000 people, which is a benefit for patients seeking treatment because they do not have to travel to other cities.
The medical professional said that the patient must go to the place where the machine is located and that it is generally an outpatient treatment of several days, between 30 and 50 days, every day. If we multiply it by only 30 days of mobilization, if we multiply it by only 30 days of mobilization, if we multiply it by only 30 days of mobilization, a patient who has to travel to a center 150 km away is a high economic cost and also a loss of quality the patient’s life. Traveling is stressful, it is better to seek treatment closer to home.
We provide the service for some social work in Civilcho and now we are studying the possibility of reaching an agreement with the approval of OSECAC and PAMI. Little by little we will integrate all service providers. The directors of the Ministry of Health also contacted us because they are interested in the service we provide, he said.
Dr Dinucci said the patient was coming to the Center for the first time, referred by a surgeon or oncologist. An assessment is made to determine the type and amount of radiation. Once treatment has been decided, planning is done with CT or MRI. All patients must undergo an imaging study because the machine we placed in the center works with patient images. We need to make a mold for the patient with three-dimensional tomography to locate the area to be treated and with a calculation process it is decided how to program the machine so that it emits radiation at the place where it will be emitted, and not where it is not is needed.
We are capable of modern radiation therapy, ie. 3-dimensional radiation therapy, intensive-modulated radiation therapy and image-guided radiation therapy. “If we need to treat the lungs, when the patient breathes this organ moves and changes position, then this machine has the advantage of being able to monitor the movement of the lungs and not irradiate healthy tissue,” he said, adding that we could do radioneurosurgery, which is a highly specialized practice that can treat very fine-grained brain tumors and treat cysts or brain tumors. We also perform extracorporeal stereotaxic radiation therapy for tumors outside the central nervous system, which is performed between two or four sessions to destroy tumor cells, replacing surgery in some cases.
The idea is that our branches at work can be served at Civilchoy
Omar Belikozo, OSECAC Director of Social Affairs, visited the LA RAZONE Clinic and said that I was invited to visit the clinic and that it was truly amazing, with a construction I never imagined. out. To know the bunker, where the famous machine is, which is at the center of everything, is surprising.
The idea is that our branches at work can be served at Civilchoy. It is an extraordinary work and need, not only for the city, but also for the region. “We must all make sure that this center is filled with patients who need to be treated in such a center,” he said.
Belikozo reminded that patients who need rays are referred to the cities of Nun or the federal capital, so Civilco deserved a center of these characteristics, with this technology applied to this type of medicine. No one can be against, on the contrary, we will see if we can make a deal.
