    Federal Scientific Clinical Centre for Medical Radiology and Oncology of the FMBA of Russia is one of the best complex hospitals in Russia. The construction of the center began in 2010 and accepted the first patients in 2019. This total construction area - is 29 thousand m² and has a Building volume - of 545 thousand m³. Every patient could treat comfortable examination by highly qualified and very attentive medical staff. The main objectives of the Federal Scientific Clinical Centre for Medical Radiology and Oncology of the FMBA of Russia include providing patients with all types of specialized and high-tech medical care: • Application of new technologies and unique methods in radionuclide diagnosis and therapy, radiation therapy, and proton therapy; • Research and development in clinical, nuclear, and radiation medicine; • Analysis and forecast of the most important directions for the development of the latest diagnostic, treatment, and preventive programs; • Training of highly qualified personnel in medical radiology; It should be mentioned that the Clinical Centre has several building with state-of-the-art equipment and the latest techniques. 1. PROTON CENTRE Proton therapy is a state-of-the-art and effective treatment method for the vast majority of tumors. Proton beam therapy is unmatched in accuracy. It can deliver high-dose radiation exactly to irregularly shaped or deep-lying tumors while conveying less dose to surrounding healthy tissues. Benefits of proton therapy (compared to conventional radiation): • Low level of side effects • Faster patient recovery • High probability of complete destruction of tumor cells • Reduced risk of metastases and relapse 2. PET/CT CENTRE The PET/CT Centre provides advanced methods of nuclear diagnosis/ imaging services for up to 6 thousand studies per year. Positron emission tomography makes it possible not only to obtain images of internal organs, but also to assess their functioning and metabolism. As a result, the disease is detected at an early stage, even before the clinical symptoms appear. PET/CT EXAMINATIONS ARE USED FOR: • Study of tumor metabolism • TNM classification (cancer stage identification) • Quantitative assessment of tumor perfusion (for therapy planning) • Early diagnosis of complex diseases • Oncological and non-oncological functional assessment of organs and tissues • Early metastases detection and generalization of the pathological process in oncology • Effectiveness evaluation of drug, radiation, and chemotherapy leading to the adoption of more effective therapeutic strategies Diagnostic objects - brain, skeleton, thyroid and parathyroid glands, lungs, breast, sentinel lymph nodes, heart, liver, spleen, colon, rectum, lymphatic and venous systems, prostate, uterus, kidney, esophagus, pancreas, salivary glands. 3. RADIONUCLIDE THERAPY BUILDING Radionuclide therapy is a method of treatment based on delivering radiopharmaceuticals (RP) to patients, normally through injection into the bloodstream. The building has 37 active beds and serves 2500 patients per year. Radioiodine therapy is used to treat severe forms of thyroid cancer, thyrotoxicosis, and hyperthyroidism in patients with a high risk of surgery and intolerance to medication. A course of radioiodine therapy prescribed to patients for the treatment of: • Diffuse toxic goiter • Papillary thyroid cancer • Follicular thyroid cancer • Regional and distant metastases of thyroid cancer 4. RADIOLOGY BUILDING In a separate building, there is a park of radiotherapeutic equipment using photon, electron, and gamma-ionizing radiation: • linear accelerators by Varian • GammaMedplus after loaders by Varian • X-ray therapy unit Wolf by WOmed. External beam radiotherapy is used to treat a wide range of oncological diseases either as an independent method or in combination with other therapies (surgery, hormonotherapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy). Photon therapy is the most common type of radiation therapy. Brachytherapy is a type of contact radiotherapy in which a sealed radiation source is placed directly inside the or on the skin next to the area requiring treatment by means of automated machine. Brachytherapy commonly used as an effective treatment of: • Cervical cancer • Vaginal cancer • Rectal cancer 5. CONSULTATIVE DIAGNOSTIC POLYCLINIC The Polyclinic represented consultative and diagnostic units for 240 visits per shift. Consultative unit: • Appointments with oncologists, gynecologic oncologists, oncourologists, and other specialty doctors Diagnostic unit: • CT scanning • MRI scanning • Scintigraphy/ Scintillation scanning • Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) • X-ray diagnosis • Bone densitometry • Ultrasound diagnosis • Endoscopic diagnosis 6. CLINICAL INPATIENT HOSPITAL The clinical hospital building comprises: • Radiotherapy Department • Brachytherapy Department • Antitumour Medical Therapy Department • Surgery Department • Rehabilitation Department • Anaesthesiology & Intensive Care Department The departments intended for the hospitalization of patients for 312 beds. The choice of an adequate method or a combination of various options for combined treatment is made individually for each patient. The hospital is equipped with an up-to-date operating unit consisting of two operating rooms: • General surgery operating room • Angiography (hybrid) operating room 7. REHABILITATION BUILDING The aim of the department is to provide rehabilitative activities for cancer patients after radical treatment (malignant tumors of different localizations) with the help of state-of-the-art equipment and the latest techniques in this area. A medical rehabilitation program is developed individually for each patient. Rehabilitation methods and techniques: • Unique physical therapy rehabilitation programs with the use of medical diagnostic complex of simulators • Vojta/Bobath treatment tables for physiotherapy • Robot-assisted gait training (Lokomat) - one of the most famous locomotor therapy systems of robotic rehabilitation based on the feedback principle • Physiotherapy (galvanization and electrophoresis, pulsed currents, UHF and microwave therapy, ultraviolet radiation "blue light", magnetotherapy, ultrasound, laser and magneto-laser therapy, electrosleep therapy, inhalatorium, hypoxytherapy) • Hydrotherapy (coniferous-pearl baths, sodium chloride baths with hydro- and air massage, Charcot's douche, Scottish shower, circular douche, raining douche, Vichy shower, underwater massage shower, rising douche) • Phonopedic (speech and language) classes. The Centre provides the latest comprehensive rehabilitation treatment for patients with speech and other mental disorders (aphasia, dysarthria, impaired writing, reading, counting and gnosis). Psychological relaxation sensory rooms give our patients an opportunity to relax, get vivid emotions and develop a positive mindset, thus, significantly accelerating the rehabilitation process and improving their quality of life.
