Establish contact with the specialist physician during the first personal consultation. This contact can be made immediately after the occurrence of the first clinical symptoms requiring the completion of additional tests that the doctor prescribes for you on this occasion.
Establish the diagnosis to define the best treatment strategy, based on the results of medical imaging, on the cytological or anatomopathological analysis of the samples, and your biological check-up (blood test). The type of cancer and its biological characteristics will then be specified. Some tests may be redone for further examination.
Once the diagnosis is made, the patient dossier is presented to a multidisciplinary panel of specialists at a meeting called the colloquium, in order to provide the best indication for treatment. The proposal and its benefits at the end of this colloquium are explained to the patient, as well as the possible side effects, and transmitted to the attending physician.
The planning of the personalized treatment (computed dosimetry) is carried out and followed by a quality control, the latter procedure not requiring the presence of the patient.
Treatment is performed according to the prescribed rhythm and duration of therapy. A weekly clinical check is performed by the radiation oncologist, in addition to the daily checks performed by the radiology technicians.
At the end of the treatment, the consultation made by the radiation oncologist allows the verification of the clinical condition of the patient and to define the framework for collaboration with other physicians (oncologist, surgeon, attending physician) for the post-therapeutic monitoring of the patient.
