CT Scan - Major Treatments

The term oncology literally means a branch of science that deals with tumours and cancers. The word “onco” means bulk, mass, or tumor while “logy” means study.

Each cell of the body has a tightly regulated system that controls its growth, maturity, reproduction and eventual death.

Cancer begins when cells in a part of the body start to grow out of control. There are many kinds of cancer, but they all start because of out-of-control growth of abnormal cells.

Medical professionals who practice oncology are called Cancer Specialists or Oncologists.

Ultrasound is used in many different fields. Ultrasonic devices are used to detect objects and measure distances. Ultrasound imaging or sonography is often in medicine.

Ureteroscopy

Ureteroscopy is useful in the diagnosis and the treatment of disorders such as kidney stones.

Vitrectomy

The original purpose of vitrectomy was to remove clouded vitreous— usually containing blood.

The success of these procedures led to the development of techniques and instruments to remove clouding and also to peel scar tissue off the light sensitive lining of the eye—the retina—membranectomy, to provide space for materials injected in the eye to reattach the retina such as gases or liquid silicone, and to increase the efficacy of other surgical steps such as scleral buckle.
