Pediatric Oncology: The diagnosis and treatment of pediatric age cancers are carried out in our hospitals by a “multi expert team work” which includes; radiology that use the diagnostic methods such as graphs, ultrasonography, pathology which will provide the microscopic diagnosis, various surgery departments that will perform the necessary cancer operations, radiation oncology that will give radiotherapy to the patient, pediatric oncology that will give the medication treatment. Diagnosis and treatment stages of the patients are discussed in the meetings called “pediatric tumors council”.
In the diagnosis stage of the cancers; the samples taken with needles are increasingly used more than the pieces taken with operations in the past. Developed interventional radiology services are needed for this. Since our center is an advanced transplantation center these highly advanced services are also used in cancer assessments.
There are recent treatment applications which added innovations to medical literature are used in Childhood Age Hemangiomas (rose spots).
