Overview

Cancer is one of the most serious health problems of our century. Three basic methods for the treatment of cancer are as follows: chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery. Undoubtedly, radiotherapy is the most complex treatment method among others since the patients and their relatives have difficulty in comprehending the beams used in radiotherapy and how these beams affect them. On the other hand, radiotherapy is more effective than surgery in local cancer treatment and it is also painless. It is very important and necessary for human health to select and implement the treatment by experts. This necessity requires Radiotherapy programs, and our program has been established in parallel with the developments in the world.
