Medical Port and Clinica de Radioterapia do Porto offer two treatments with the most advanced equipment and experienced professionals: Intraoperative radiotherapy and Brachytherapy for prostate carcinoma.
Intra-operative Breast Surgery
Intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) is a very innovative surgery in Europe for breast cancer. Clinica de Radioterapia do Porto was the first center in Europe to adopt this procedure in 2012 in breast surgery. CRP is a pioneer in the application of breast intra-operative radiation therapy as a single radiation modality. The treatment consists of applying a single dose of radiation, directly in the affected tissues and cells, right after the patient gets surgery, while the patient is still in the operating room. After a few minutes of radiation (8 to 14 minutes depending on the cell type), the patient can recover from the surgery and doesn’t have to face the conventional radiotherapy treatments.
Brachytherapy for Prostate Carcinoma
Brachytherapy is a modern and valid therapy that consists of implementing radioactive iodine seeds in the prostate. Iodine seeds are small metal fragments (of roughly 5 x 1mm) responsible for releasing Gamma radiation. The implantation of such seeds is performed so that the high-dose radiation they emit concentrates on the affected gland, preserving the prostate’s neighboring tissues and organs. In Brachytherapy, an endo-rectal ultrasound probe allows a real-time, clear picture of the prostate, and enables the determination of the number of needles to implant and the number of seeds to introduce in each needle.

CNS offers specialised treatments for Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis and several other neurological diseases.
