RS in Indonesia Can Cure Cancer with Sophisticated

To get cancer treatment with advanced therapy, usually patients must be willing to seek medical treatment abroad with a very expensive cost. But now cancer patients do not need all the way to Singapore, because hospitals in Indonesia already have advanced radiotherapy equipment Linac Rapid Arc. About 70 percent of patients who seek treatment to Singapore is a patient from Indonesia. Sophisticated treatment facilities and promising to make Indonesian patients willing to seek medical treatment far into the country lion. But for radiotherapy with cutting-edge techniques, cancer patients need not go far to Singapore, since since 28 April 2011 and then, the Indonesian hospital already has Linear Accelerator with Rapid arc technique. “” Linear Accelerator with Rapid arc or Volumetric arc therapy is relatively new and first in Indonesia. This new tool is the only one in Indonesia, present in MRCCC, “” said Dr. Fielda Djuita, SpRad (K) Onk, radiation oncologist specialist MRCCC Siloam Hospitals, during the seminar ‘Detection of Early and New Technology in Cancer Therapy’ at MRCCC Siloam Hospitals, Jakarta, Friday (24/06/2011). According to Dr. Fielda, this latest radiotherapy allows radiation with a single round of gantry surrounding the patient’s body, thus providing many advantages for the patient.Dr Fielda mentions the benefits of this radiotherapy technique include: Dosage given more homogeneous Can be formed according to irradiated organs Avoid healthy tissue around tumor cells or cancer Radiation time is shorter thereby preventing changes in patient position and reducing side effects. Radiobiologically more profitable and side effects are much smaller than other techniques. “” Now do not need all the way to Singapore, in Indonesia this tool already exists. The price is also cheaper compared to Singapore. And patients also do not need to spend a lot of money for the cost of living and expensive transportation in Singapore. We have the tools and experts here, doing so far there, “” continued Dr. Fielda who also practiced in Dharmais Cancer Hospital. Unlike conventional techniques commonly done, Rapid arc technique is directly targeting cancer cells in accordance with the form, so it can be used for radiating small and inaccessible cancer cells without affecting surrounding healthy cells. “” At 45 percent more expensive than other radiotherapy techniques, the Rapid arc technique provides accuracy of up to 95.5 percent. And very well done for cancer cells with small size and difficult to reach, “” continued Dr. Fielda.Dr. Fielda also said that the need of radiation therapy in Indonesia is very much. According to Astro’s (2008) data, there are an estimated 151,800 patients requiring radiation therapy per year, which accounts for 66 percent of all cancer patients.But 2010 data says there are only 14,553 patients served per year, which means that in Indonesia less than 10 percent of patients cancer served by radiation therapy. “” Patients who need radiation therapy is a lot, sometimes have to queue up to 6 months, yes cancer trigger spread everywhere. So with this tool we help many cancer patients, “” explains Dr. Fielda. Since its start in April 2011, Dr. Fielda said up to now there are about 35 patients who do radiation therapy with this Linac arc, the average patient is from abroad. “” We have not been Grand Opening so maybe not many people know. But permissions are already there and we can operate. So do not go all the way to Singapore if you want radiation therapy Rapid arc, here too, the cost is also cheaper, “” said Dr. Fielda. New Diagnostic ToolsIn addition to Linac Rapid arc, other new technologies that already exist in Indonesia is PET-CT ( Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography). Unlike the Rapid arc, PET-CT is a new tool for early diagnosis, detection and monitoring of cancer therapies. “” Comprehensively, PET-CT can provide accurate information and diagnosis of cancer, early detection of recurrence of cancer and therapy monitoring ” “explains Dr. Eko Purnomo, SpKN, nuclear medicine specialist from RS MRCCC.PET-CT can detect precisely the spread of cancer to determine the right method of healing for patients. Another advantage, the resulting image can explain the whole system or the function of organs in the body. “” PET-CT is safe to use where the results of the study find that radiation exposure is the same as X-ray CT, “” Dr Eko concluded.
