The arm of the robot is 5 cm longer and 6 cm thinner than the previous version. To provide a wider surgical site, the movable angle of the robot surgeon is increased from 149 to 177 degrees.

Da Vinci Xi can perform the most complex operations (for example, remove the smallest cancerous tissue) much more precisely than hands of a person. Compared with traditional laparotomic methods, the use of a robotic system makes it possible to significantly reduce the manifestations of pain, bleeding, scarring and the risk of infection. Such treatment contributes to the rapid postoperative recovery of the patient.

The latest generation collimator Halcyon 2.0 operates twice as fast as its predecessor. The speed of the device is 4 times more, so you can get a CBCT image 4 times faster. Therapy of cancer using the Halcyon 2.0 system is carried out according to the principle of three-dimensional measurement, under visual control. This equipment has a monoenergy of 6 MW (the maximum radiation rate per minute is up to 800MU monitor unit), which makes innovative radiotherapy of the most complex types of cancer in the shortest possible time.

In the Anam Cancer Center, Lineac VitalBeam is also used - an ultramodern device for treating malignant neoplasms, tracks and removes cancer cells with the help of three-dimensional stereoscopic images. This model of a linear accelerator is an improved version, which, compared to the previous one, conducts therapy in 5 minutes instead of 10-20 minutes,. At the same time, cancer cells in moving organs are eliminated by accurate irradiation by only 25% of the 100% X-ray doses used to treat oncology with earlier accelerator models. Over the years, the Anam Cancer Center clinic has achieved high quality results in the treatment of various types of cancer. Following facts confirm this:
