With the advancement of technology, traditional cancer treatment options like chemotherapy and radiation are falling behind, and people seek personalized cancer treatment options that provide a higher chance of recovery suited to their specific case. Promising technology trends are being observed on this front, chief among which are streamlined immunotherapy drugs, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image guided radiation therapy (IGRT), and targeted therapy. Small, rapid rotations of different immunotherapies are administered to patients to identify effective, person-specific treatment options, and targeted therapy aims to create a database of cancer patients with similar genetic profiles for future reference.
While traditional radiation caused significant damage to healthy tissues surrounding the cancerous cells, IMRT uses advanced computer programs to calculate and deliver radiation from varying angles and cause less damage. Radiation doses are adjusted according to any growth or movement in the tumor using IGRT. Surgeries to remove cancerous masses have also improved with the use of robots, resulting in lower complications, minimal scarring and quick recovery.
As important technological breakthroughs take place in the field of oncology, solution providers thrive under the demand to offer innovative solutions that will help hospitals and healthcare organizations serve the patients better. As a plethora of new oncology solutions reach the market, a distinguished panel comprising CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts, and MedTech Outlook’s editorial board has reviewed the top oncology solution providers and shortlisted the ones that are at the forefront of this industry.
