Cancer Treatment To Become Less Expensive

The diagnosis and treatment of cancer will become less expensive and easier in India as a result of the latest technologies. Cancer can be easily detected with the help of polyfex stent, and Fuji intelligent chromo endoscope.// This will particularly contribute towards preventing gastrointestinal cancer claiming too many lives in the country, according to the Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy of India’s (SGEI) Randhir Sud.

The cost of treating the disease will also come down to less than Rs.50,000 from the present Rs.100,000 to Rs.150,000. SGEI, a national body of gastroenterologists and endoscopists, is holding its sixth annual conference in which the new technologies will be introduced to the participants. The two-day conference, beginning on 10 February 2006, has been organized this year by Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, which will adopt these technologies in the near future. The conference would also showcase endosonography-scopes and linear and radial endoscopes. While the former will perform ultrasound tests and endoscope tests through one machine, the latter would help in diagnosis and biopsy.

Sud said the narrow band imaging technology would help in getting the details of superficial tissues in the intestines and in recognizing the disease even a year before it starts showing symptoms. The polyfex stent technology would also be handy in treating cancer in the food pipe. Around 600 doctors from across the country are expected to participate in the conference.
