Kamlançu Nuclear Industry and Trade Inc., which continues its activities in Cube Incubation, the incubation center of Teknopark Istanbul, has developed the small-scale PET-CT device, which is the most advanced method used in cancer diagnosis, with domestic technology.

Technopark İstanbulKamlançu, who continues its activities in Cube Incubation, the incubation center of Nuclear Sanayi ve Ticaret AŞ, cancer developed the small-scale PET-CT device, which is the most advanced method used in diagnosis, with domestic technology.

The small-scale preliminary prototype of PET-CT, the best radiological test method not only in diagnosis but also in the follow-up of the treatment, is ready. Starting out with the support of TÜBİTAK and KOSGEB, Kamlançu also localizes the subsystems of the device and develops the patient-specific radiotherapy treatment software used in cancer treatment for the first time. These nuclear subsystems are used by many strategic sectors such as defense, aviation and space.

Focusing on developing nuclear technologies in 2018, Kamlançu’s first goal stands out as developing a PET-IT system. The company develops a small-scale version of the product in line with this goal. In this version, radiopharmaceuticals, ie nuclear medicine examinations, can be performed with radioactive drugs applied for diagnosis or treatment. Turkey The patent work for this product, which is the first for the company, is still in progress. It is aimed to make the product testable for use in hospitals in three years.

Description of the place given to the views Kamlanç founder and Physics Engineer Tevfik Kaplanoglu, said that they set out a very expensive imported product yerlileştirerek to serve Turkey. Kaplanoğlu used the following statements:

“We have advanced know-how about the detector technologies used by PET-CT and how to develop these technologies. We also have more than one discipline such as software, image analysis, electronic circuits. We simulate nuclear and radiation-related scenarios in computer environment. Damage to healthy tissues. We make local radiotherapy planning software to prevent the software from seeing it. We are starting new R&D projects in the field of PET-IT together with Suat Özkorucuklu and Associate Professor Tuba Çonka Yıldız from Turkish-German University. with national private sector organizations We want to grow together. “

Kamlançu focuses on nuclear technologies in Cube Incubation, the incubator center of Teknopark Istanbul, and develops subsystem solutions in areas such as space, defense, medical and aviation, and produces the necessary equipment. The company, which develops local radiotherapy planning software, manufactures nuclear electronic subsystems domestically. He is working on a single photon detection module in his project in Teknopark Istanbul. This modular structure, which is used to measure photon in small quantities, enables precise resolution of objects that are kilometers away in different areas and is used in LiDAR applications.
