Intraoperative magnetic resonance
We possess a 3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging system in the operating room. A high precision image during the surgery process enables surgeon to check in a real time a degree of the tumour and the need to adjust the resection.
Fluorescent microscope surgery stains the tumour tissue in a different colour from the healthy one and allows the surgeon to distinguish the margins of the tumour that is to be removed.
Novel techniques such as three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy, beam intensity modulated radiotherapy and stereotactic techniques that require state-of-the-art linear accelerators and significant computer support.
