Diagnosis of mediastinal cancer in Israeli clinics
Israeli hospitals are equipped with innovative equipment that allows accurate studies to be carried out as soon as possible. This makes it possible to avoid inaccuracies and errors when making a diagnosis. It is enough that 30% of diagnoses made in clinics of the former CIS countries are refuted in Israeli medical institutions.
As diagnostic measures for suspected mediastinal cancer, the doctor prescribes the following studies:
- X-ray ;
- scintigraphy ;
- MRI, CT;
- biopsy with endoscopic examination;
PET-CT and PET-MRI - allow you to determine the extent of the spread of cancer.
After the patient undergoes all the prescribed procedures, based on the results, the doctors' council prescribes the optimal treatment option that will give the best result.
Techniques and cost of therapy in the treatment of mediastinal cancer
Therapeutic techniques are chosen by medical specialists depending on the type of mediastinal cancer, location, presence /absence of metastases. The most progressive in this case is the method of surgical intervention with the removal of the tumor. In this case, the medical council determines the method of the operation. This can be:
- thoracoscopic method - the operation takes place without cutting the chest cavity, and surgical instruments, a video camera and light are inserted through punctures between the ribs. In this case, all actions of the surgeon are displayed on the monitor;
- thoracotomy is an open operation.
In addition to surgical intervention, chemotherapy is widely used as a therapeutic treatment for mediastinal cancer. and radiotherapy. Chemotherapy is necessary to block tumor growth, it is performed before and (or) after surgery using new generation cytostatic drugs. Radiation therapy (radiation therapy) allows, in individual cases, to treat mediastinal cancer without surgery, for example, if surgery is contraindicated for the patient. Brachytherapy can also be prescribed, when a source of radiation of radioactive waves is placed in the tumor focus, as a result of which it is possible to reduce the size of the neoplasm or completely destroy it.

Added to this is the favorable cost of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The total price that a patient needs to pay for receiving quality services from Israeli doctors is much lower than the cost in many other clinics in the world, while the cost of therapy can be paid in installments.
