Findings to Improve Survival Rate
The nose, ear, throat and neck tumour laboratory of the tumour institute under the Academy of Medical Science developed a new diagnostic and treatment method of thyroidal cancer through decades-long painstaking efforts.
At present, surgical operation is applied to cure the thyroidal cancer. In general, a patient suffering from the thyroidal cancer can prolong his/her life only after removing the thyroid gland.
The research team enhanced the accuracy of diagnosing the cancer up to 90% (the world level 86.5%) before an operation by introducing ultrasonography and cytodiagnosis and improved the survival rate of patient by applying a unique treatment method.
Jang Song Hyok, section chief of the laboratory, said that they would make redoubled efforts to deepen their studies.
