New forms of medical cancer treatment in development
in todays society we have successfully managed to eliminate, or near eliminate at least, many of the factors that prior would cause a marcable part of the society to die in earlier years. Many people would die before reaching old age due to causes such as famine, poor working and housing conditions, poor sanitary health as well as by then common diseases, which we have successfully managed to eliminate today thanks to vaccination at early days. Nevertheless, even in todays society too many people die due to sickness, however now it is rarely caused by sickness that could easily be prevented or treated if for example antibiotics. The problems of illness we are facing in todays society are rather of the kind of cancer, for example. Complex illnesses requiring complex treatments and diagnoses. The field has long been criticized for not having developed its means of treatments enough in recent decade, with old forms of cytostatics still in usage, as an example.
Luckily there have been great process made the recent years, and on todays market have forms of treatments such as electron beam therapy which gives advanced 3D-visualization regarding diagnosis and planning been introduced. A new player on the field as well is Machine learning oncology, aiming to make treatment planning and medical treatment itself as safe and effective as possible. With sophisticated forms om machine learning in machine learning oncology which can create complex and advanced forms of treatment planning the goal is to not only make it as secure and accurate as possible, but as well to make it possible for medical staff to focus on other tasks rather than treatment planning.
There are many different aspects to take into consideration
When talking about medical treatment in general, and cancer treatment in particular there are many different important aspects to be taken into consideration. Firstly before medical treatment there is always the desire to prevent illnesses, and in the case of cancer a diagnosis at an early stage of the cancer is in many cases important, and even crucial for survival in some cases. When treatment is the only option remaining, it is of high importance to have developed well-fitted and advanced forms om treatments, such as Electron beam therapy which provides advanced 3 Dimensional-visualization, highlighting electron and photon plans. When treatment is introduced it is also important to have a structured plan for further treatments, this highlighting the usage of deep learning segmentation which has also been introduced in more recent years to the market of medical treatment.
