Tomotherapy - The most effective way to fight cancer!

Personalized radiotherapeutic treatment

Tomotherapy is the most effective and latest method in the fight against cancer, offering patients the opportunity for treatment at the Medicalpark Bahçelievler Hospital in Istanbul. Within this therapy, the required dose can reach multiple tumor cells while organs are protected and healthy tissues are preserved to the maximum extent. The Tomotherapy device can be found in only two medical facilities in Istanbul.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Berin Pehlivan, head of the Radiotherapy Department at Medicalpark Bahçelievler Hospital in Istanbul, states that the Tomotherapy device allows targeted rays to be applied with different doses to different types of tumors, which can also vary in size, in various locations simultaneously. After pinpointing the location of the tumor cells, radiotherapy is applied with different doses and from different angles using Tomotherapy. It requires the creation of a personalized plan for each patient, so not only are cancer cells treated most effectively, but exposure to high radiation of healthy organs is also avoided. Targeted therapy is one of the most significant advantages. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Berin Pehlivan explains that the healthy tissues surrounding the tumor cells are protected with multidirectional beams, and the side effects from this therapy are fewer than those of traditional radiotherapy. She emphasizes a substantial benefit in the treatment, which demands a race against time, as the beams can be applied simultaneously to more than one area.

Assoc. Prof. Berin Pehlivan, sharing her experience in general radiation during Tomotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery with Dr. Florian Sterzing (who conducts observations on Tomotherapy in the Radiotherapy Department of Heidelberg University), aims to establish the Radiotherapy Department as the best cancer treatment center. They work towards making a significant contribution to human life through technological and scientific innovations.

Advantages of Tomotherapy treatment:

✔ Targeted therapy

✔ Fewer side effects

✔ Possibility for retreatment

✔ Time-saving

✔ Clinical excellence. It allows for the planning and delivery of precisely tailored radiation doses. The embedded "computed tomography" technology is ideal for accurate patient positioning, reducing boundary values, and adaptive planning.

Personalized Approach

Every patient receives a "Customized" treatment. Side effects can be minimized as more healthy tissue is protected.


Facilitates scheduling within traditional time frames. Provides treatment options that are not possible with the conventional method.

3D Procedures

Images are processed daily using the genuine 3D computed tomography system, integrated with the Tomotherapy system, and the "Helical" radiation delivery is associated with three-dimensional therapeutic doses.
