Best Medical Equipment for Brain tumor Treatment and Diagnosis

CyberKnife

CyberKnife

Description

CyberKnife is a robotic device to perform radiosurgery with precise radiation delivery to the organs affected with benign and malignant tumors.

Features

This method allows destroying tumors without incisions and pain; it is frequently used as an alternative to surgery when neoplasms are hard to reach or cannot be operated. The radiation is directed accurately, so it does not affect healthy tissues or organs. Treatment with CyberKnife is an outpatient procedure: just after a session (it lasts about 30-90 minutes), a patient can return home and their everyday activities.

Result for Brain tumor

Among 133 of patients with brain metastases, 90% of them with such symptoms as headaches or seizures experience improvement and stabilizing of their conditions after CyberKnife sessions. Another study of 333 patients showed that 85% of them take over the tumor growth: it decreases or stops its development. 92% of people with inoperative tumors observe the reduction of symptoms caused by a lesion.

CyberKnife
Gamma Knife

Gamma Knife

Description

Gamma Knife is a radiosurgery device to manage radiation therapy. It uses 192 radiation beams to precisely target brain tumors. Each beam goes separately through the healthy brain tissues, and then they meet together in the target delivering there a high radiation dose.

Features

The procedure is painless, performed without incisions and anesthesia. It is an alternative to traditional surgery for hard-to-reach or inoperable tumors. A GammaKnife session does not require admission; a patient can go back home and return to allowed activities just after a procedure.

Result for Brain tumor

A patient observes a tumor’s shrinking in the period of 18-24 months in 60% of cases for benign tumors and in 80-90% for malignant neoplasms. As a result, pain disappears and affected brain functions recover.

Price

from $6000

Gamma Knife
TomoTherapy

TomoTherapy

Description

Tomotherapy represents a type of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). The device combines a CT scanner and linear accelerator to deliver radiation to the tumor. In-built CT scan receives images of a tumor before each treatment session that allows to target tumors precisely.

Features

With TomoTherapy, a tumor is affected with radiation slice-by-slice, not the entire neoplasm at once. The duration of one session is shortened: it takes several minutes, no hospital stay is necessary after the procedure. A patient can experience tiredness and appetite changes after tomotherapy.

Result for Brain tumor

It is applied to treat benign and malignant brain tumors, including glioblastoma. Metastatic brain tumors respond to the treatment in 80.9% of cases. A 1-year survival rate is 41.2%, a 2-year survival rate is 24.7%.

Price

from $336

TomoTherapy
Proton Therapy

Proton Therapy

Description

Proton therapy is a type of radiation therapy affecting tumors with protons, not X-rays. The X-rays damage healthy tissues on their way to a tumor that limits their usage. In the case with proton therapy, protons precisely hit a neoplasm, while healthy tissues remain unaffected that allow using stronger doses of irradiation to hit tumors located near vital organs. During a session, a patient lays on the table and a machine rotates producing proton beams to hit a tumor.

Features

This is an outpatient procedure; a person can leave a hospital just after a session is over. Usually, the whole treatment cycle takes 30 minutes to complete. It usually continues 5 times a week for several weeks. The radiation dose may change over the treatment. No specific rehab is needed. Such side effects as fatigue, headache, hair loss that can develop over time.

Result for Brain tumor

20 patients with low-grade gliomas underwent proton therapy. Clinicians supervised patients after the treatment for 5.1 years. All participants tolerated the therapy well: intellectual functioning, vision, attention, working memory remained normal. A 3-year disease-free progression was observed in 85% of cases. 40% survived 5 years without disease progression.

Review on brain tumor treatment. The patient from had the medical trip in 2017.

I worked with bookimed to explore options for brain tumor surgery in Turkey. In less than 24 hours after filling out the form online with basic information, received a call from bookimed specialist. It was very helpful that Ivan Koval spoke both Russian and English. Upon sending patient's scans, Ivan was able to give his feedback on urgency of the matter and relayed all of that in both languages. Within one day, we received responses from 2 clinics. With Ivan's help we were able to evaluate both bids as well as quality of facilities. It was very reassuring that Ivan knew the names of the specialists that I had already researched. Since the parents of the child insisted that I made at least one contact directly with the clinic, the delay of the direct response and the quality of the bid were very disconcerting. Direct contact with a clinic was done by the clinic's administrative staff who began making contacts with orthopedist and ophthalmologist (based on symptoms caused by the brain tumor!). Contrary to the parents' expectations, direct contact was not "more economic" but turned out to be too vague and still unclear if the correct department was ever consulted. Ivan's situation was very difficult as he had to deal with a family who made decisions based on the cost (no regard for quality) and word of the mouth (no differentiation as to which procedure was done). He was very patient and compassionate to the fate of the child. Ivan was able to relay to the child's parents diagnosis, bids, comparisons, and complexity of the procedure to be performed. It takes several hours per day and several days to coordinate the correct diagnosis based on scans and numerous phone calls between different time zones to coordinate quick and accurate response. I received updates and calls as soon as they came in which implies that Ivan worked 24/7 to make the best arrangements. While my initial contact was a shot in the dark, over the course of few days I began to appreciate the sense of confidence that comes from having a trained medical specialist to represent your interests when "shopping" for a brain surgeon. No amount of googling and online reviews can substitute opinion from a trained medic in dealing with various clinics. At the end of the day, I feel that having Ivan to oversee the process from admission to the RIGHT clinic to take care of the RIGHT procedure (brain and not foot) all the way to discharge is a solid form of medical insurance.

The patient was treated of brain tumor in Medical Center in Solingen

Good evening !!! I was in the clinic for a consultation in early September. Dr. Bul and the staff are very polite, attentive, calm, and what is surprising, they are not trying to make money on you, but they offer options for cheaper treatment and testing. No one tried to scare or speed up the treatment process, but on the contrary, explained the risks and different methods of treatment, which encouraged and inspired hope for a favorable resolution of my problem. Добрый вечер!!!была в клинике на консультации в первых числах сентября.Доктор Буль и персонал очень вежливы,внимательны,спокойны, и что удивило, не пытаются на тебе заработать,а предлагают варианты удешевления лечения и сдачи анализов.Никто не пытался напугать или ускорить процесс лечения, а наоборот, разъяснили риски и разные способы лечения, что обрадовало и вселило надежду на благоприятное разрешение моей проблемы.

How to choose the best hospital for a brain tumor?

While choosing the hospital for brain tumor treatment, take into account:

  • Location of the brain tumor hospital. Choose the brain tumor hospital which is faster to reach from your country. It mainly concerns cases when a patient needs an urgent surgical intervention.
  • Neurosurgeon’s qualification. Experienced doctors undergo practice at the world leading medical centers, they have certificates and positive patients’ reviews. Doctors of the best brain tumor treatment centers remove a tumor applying special surgical robot. It provides higher accuracy and shortens rehab period. Pay attention that world-renowned neurosurgeons may ask for a higher fee.
  • Availability of neuronavigation system. It helps a doctor controlling all the movements to decrease the possibility of healthy brain tissues damaging during surgery.
  • The success rate of a brain tumor removal. The brain tumor treatment centers in the world represent high recovery rate and long life expectancy after surgery. So check this info before choosing the brain tumor hospital.

Where are top brain tumor treatment centers located?

The best hospitals for a brain tumor are located in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.

Germany and Spain are among the best countries to treat brain tumor in Europe. Thailand, South Korea, and India — are top ones in Asia; Turkey — in the Middle East.

These countries offer different prices for the brain tumor treatment, but the quality of therapy remains at about the same level because all procedures are performed according to the strict international treatment protocols. The cost varies due to general price policy within the country and income of local citizens.

How is a brain tumor diagnosed abroad?

Before the development of a treatment plan, doctors appoint diagnostic procedures. Depending on the symptoms and type of a suspected tumor, a specialist may prescribe:

  • blood and urine tests
  • consultation with an ophthalmologist
  • examination of the eyeground
  • MRI (with or without contrast)
  • PET-CT
  • tumor biopsy.

Specialists apply safe biopsy method — brain tumor puncture at the best brain tumor centers. A neurosurgeon receives a sample of tissue using a thin needle. It is inserted through the 3-4 mm incision.

If a patient has already undergone treatment in another hospital and want to get a second medical opinion, it is necessary to show a neurosurgeon all the medical records and MRI-images. You can also have all necessary tests after arrival to the chosen hospital.

How is a brain tumor treated in world's top treatment centers?

Surgical treatment of brain tumor

  • Removal of a brain tumor applying Awake Craniotomy technique

During the surgery, a patient remains conscious and follows neurosurgeon’s recommendations. It allows detecting brain areas which control vital functions of an organism and avoid their damaging. Surgery is conducted under local anesthesia that is why the operation is painless for a patient.

  • Transnasal removal of a tumor

It is used to remove the brain tumor without surgery. A doctor does not make any incision but removes neoplasm through the sinuses.

  • Neuroendoscopy

A tumor is removed through 1.5-2 cm openings in the skull. It reduces injury rate and shortens postoperative rehabilitation. Endoscopic tools penetrate in the distant brain areas which are hard-to-reach while applying other surgical methods. The procedure requires special microsurgical equipment and high degree of neurosurgeon’s skills.

Non-surgical brain tumor treatment

  • Radiotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery

Among the brain tumor treatment options are CyberKnife and Truebeam with Novalis linear accelerator (state-of-the-art modification of GammaKnife). These systems influence the neoplasm cells with radioactive irradiation and destroy them.

  • Chemotherapy

Except for standard chemotherapy regimen, doctors of the best brain tumor centers apply intracranial chemotherapy for malignant brain tumors. A surgeon places special plates with a drug right in the brain. It reduces side effects and damage to the rest of the organs. Intracranial chemotherapy is considered as a new treatment for brain tumors.

These options are not standard ones. They are appointed individually after a consultation with a doctor.
