Sweden Ghana Medical Centre (SGMC) receives the latest and most advanced system for non-invasive cancer treatment – Multi-leaf linear accelerator in Accra. This makes SGMC the number one to own such equipment in the entire sub-region next to South Africa.

Sweden Ghana Medical Centre is a comprehensive oncology centre offering state of the art chemotherapy and radiotherapy. SGMC is a private initiative, established with the aim to bring cancer care services using cutting edge techniques combined with the Scandinavian treatment touch, high productivity and competitive pricing.

This is one of the most prestigious health care projects in Ghana. The very idea is to offer both Ghanaians and the people of the sub-region "on-the-edge-cancer treatment techniques", previously only available overseas and in South Africa.

Modern cancer treatment often includes several treatment modalities, such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
So far in Ghana there has been the need for the latest radiotherapy equipment (which is a Linear Accelerator) to complement the cobalt units we currently have in Accra and Kumasi. SGMC has installed an advanced Linear accelerator with capabilities determined for patient comfort and safety.

The dual-energy linear accelerator is now available for advanced treatments at high energies, thereby allowing more sophisticated treatment options with less patient discomfort. The multi-leaf collimator provides the capability of doing conformal treatments in threedimensions< as the multi-leaf is used to shape the radiation beam. This is supported by state-of-the-art treatment planning capabilities that is able to generate treatments using the latest IMRT techniques. The CT and MR scanner helps the doctors to see the target and will provide an outstanding tool for viewing the tumour. Here, you will see more and more designer replica handbags for sale online.
