One important topic is early cancer detection. "The last few years have shown strong medical progress in this area. This means significantly better chances of treatment for the patients concerned, because the earlier the disease is detected, the better the chances of treatment," says Prof. Ignatov.
Prof. Ignatov and PD Dr. Tchaikovski will explain in detail the various possibilities to detect (still) benign diseases in time and also to identify already malignant diseases as early as possible and thus to treat them optimally.
Medical Sunday is a cooperation between the Urania Magdeburg e.V., of the Volksstimme and Magdeburg University Medical Center. The medical Sundays provide insights into numerous medical topics. Experts in their respective fields provide information on symptoms, state-of-the-art diagnostics and therapy options at the highest scientific level. After the lectures, interested parties have the opportunity to discuss their questions directly with the physicians.
