The Tyks Cancer Centre guarantees high-quality cancer treatment and research in the hospital districts of Southwest Finland, Satakunta and Vaasa.
The Tyks Cancer Centre works to unify treatment practices and treatment quality, and to see to it that patients get access to treatment according to unified criteria in a timely manner in the western coastal area of Finland. This puts the patients with cancer at the right place at the right time, regardless of where they live.
The Tyks Cancer Centre is a part of the Cancer Center Finland (FICAN) – a national enterprise under construction to coordinate cancer treatment, research and education in the whole of Finland.

Turku BioImaging, TBI (www.bioimaging.fi), is an umbrella organization for “all things imaging” in Turku, jointly operated by Åbo Akademi University and the University of Turku. TBI was initiated in 2007 as a broad-based, interdisciplinary imaging consortium that aims at bringing together all biological and medical imaging expertise in Turku and elsewhere in Finland. In 2017, Turku BioImaging is celebrating its journey of 10 years, from a small 2-person unit to a large, fully functioning organization.
