What are the advantages of interventional oncology and why should I use a mobile flatbed C-arm?


At present, the treatment for malignant tumors mainly includes 4 major means: 1. Surgical resection treatment; 2. Radiation treatment (radiotherapy); 3. Chemical drug treatment (chemotherapy); 4. Interventional therapy. Interventional therapy refers to the intervention of tiny catheter into the patient’s tumor blood vessels and injection of high concentration of anti-cancer drugs to kill or “starve” the tumor cells under the monitoring and guidance of imaging diagnosis, such as mobile flatbed C-arm X-ray machine, nuclear magnetic resonance, ultrasound, etc. It can also kill the tumor cells through radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation, cryoablation and radioactive particle implantation. It can also kill tumor cells through radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation, cryoablation and radioactive particle implantation.

What are the advantages of interventional tumor therapy? Compared with traditional surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, interventional therapy has the following advantages:

  1. Less traumatic: Interventional therapy can avoid the risk of traditional surgical incision, and as a minimally invasive technology, it will only leave a wound of about 1-2mm in the affected area. In addition, after surgical tumor removal surgery, patients may need to rest in bed for three days before they can have normal activities, whereas after minimally invasive interventional therapy, they can get up and move around within half an hour, or even return to the pre-operative level in just eight hours, which is especially suitable for older or surgery intolerant tumor patients because of the small trauma without affecting patients’ daily life.
  2. High accuracy: Interventional therapy is carried out with the help of mobile flatbed C-arm X-ray machine, CT, ultrasound and other imaging equipments, so it can accurately locate the tumor site of the patient with small deviation, and greatly protect the integrity of the normal tissues and organs around the tumor.
  3. Obvious effect: Although interventional therapy also uses drugs, it is different from “taking medicine and injections” in internal medicine. High concentration of anti-tumor drugs can be applied to local tumor tissues through tiny catheters, which will not harm organs and tissues even in large doses, and it can eliminate tumors in a targeted way, and it can also shrink tumors and strive for another chance of surgery for the patients. It can also shrink the tumor and get another chance of surgery for the patient.

4、Low side effects: Interventional therapy can eliminate tumor tissues in a targeted way, even if the large dose of drugs will not cause harm to normal tissues, low toxic side effects and few complications are the great advantages of interventional therapy.

Advantages of mobile flat C-arm in tumor interventional therapy

Mobile flat C-arm is a kind of interventional radiology equipment, which can provide high-definition images during the procedure, helping doctors to better observe the lesion area, so as to carry out the treatment more accurately.

The advantages of the mobile flatbed C-arm are:

1、High definition images

2、Easy to operate

3、Small size and low dose

PUMA’s high-end interventional C-arms are mobile flat C-arms, which can meet about 80% of the surgical needs of large DSA equipment, and compared with large DSA equipment, mobile flat C-arms have a small footprint, low operating costs, do not require large-scale reconstruction and renovation of the operating room, do not need to be fixed and installed at any time, can be moved to any one of the operating rooms where it is needed, and can be plugged into a power supply and used immediately, which is fast and convenient. It not only has gynecological and vascular intervention capability, but also has ERCP special function. It is equipped with super large output power, unique design of large heat capacity of bulb tube, large size digital flat panel detector and wide range of mechanical travel and diagnostic space design to provide lower dose, larger field of view and more detailed HD images for clinical use.
