Introduction

Dr Zaghloul was graduated from Kasr El Ainy faculty of medicine, Cairo University on June 1976 with honor degree. He started his training on radiation oncology on Sep 1977 at radiation oncology department, national cancer institute, Cairo university. During his training he was awarded his master (MSc) and doctorate degree (MD) in radiation oncology from the faculty of medicine, Cairo university on 1980 and 1985 respectively. He started his career at National Cancer Institute as lecturer, assistant professor and full professor. During this period he supervised many academic and clinical theses, mentor many jenur faculties and residents together with treating patients. Many scientific articles were published by him either as a sole author or as a coauthor. He collaborated extensively with other specialties to treat patients and report about their managements, treatment end-results and side effects ( both immediate and late). On 1987 and 1991 he travelled to USA to work as a fellow in radiation oncology at Stanford University school of Medicine, Stanford, California for nearly one year each time. He published several article during this period. He was offered 2 international awards : The European Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology award (ESTRO-Varian Award ) on 1985 and Elianor Roosevelt American Cancer Society Award on 1991.On 1994 he was appointed as the head of Oncology department at Dr. Soliman Fakeeh Hospital, a big private hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for more than 2 years. He returned back to Egypt where he found and establish a new comprehensive cancer center at Minia ( Minia Oncology Center). This center was a multidisciplinary center the served cancer patients in the center of Upper Egypt. During this period he established the modern and up to date oncology managements for both adults and children. He spread the knowledge, treatment protocols and the best methods of cancer patients care to the universities and local hospitals in the middle upper Egypt area.
Upon opening of Children Cancer Hospital, Egypt (57357) he was allocated as chairman of radiation oncology at the hospital. A great effort was made to install the latest up to date treatment machines. Moreover, he shared in putting and implementing each disease treatment protocol with the other hospital departments. All modern radiotherapy techniques have been established and routinely applied in the department. Dr Zaghloul continue to teach train his staff as well as the other staff who join the departments from other centers in Egypt, Arab countries and Africa. Three training courses in modern radiation oncology were held by him and his staff during 2009 and 2010. During 2011 he was chosen to organize an ESTRO course with the title of " Imaging and target volume determination in radiotherapy". In this course 10 European scientists and clinicians will teach and train. On 2012 he organized another ESTRO teaching course entitled “ Multidisciplinary approach for Breast cancer management, in which 11 European clinicians and scientists taught more than 200 Egyptian and international trainees
He published more than 123 international and Egyptian articles together with presenting more than 140 presentations in international ,regional or local scientific conferences and meetings.

Radiation Oncology in Egypt

Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys 2018; 100 (3): 539-544.

Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys

Radiation therapy was first used in Egypt in the 1930s. Treatment was offered at the Kasr El Ainy Hospital (Cairo University Hospital) and delivered using the ominous sounding “Radium Bomb.” This machine held 1 g of radium in an egg-shaped, lead-lined head, just inches from the tumor. A simple shutter was opened and closed by a bicycle break cable. The lead that lined the egg offered some direction to the beam and some protection to both healthy tissue and the treating staff. At that time, just as everywhere in the world, radiation oncology did not exist as a distinct specialty and, instead, was a part of the Department of Radiology, Tumor Management and Electrotherapy, at Cairo Faculty of Medicine. Members of this department were concerned with diagnosis using x-rays, and the treatment of tumors and other diseases with radiation or electrically induced waves, later known as physiotherapy. In the late 1950s, physiotherapy and physical medicine became a separate department, and the initial department continued as radiology and radiation therapy. Many prototype departments were then founded in the new universities then emerging across Egypt, following the same model as used at Kasr El Ainy and often using the same name. Kasr El Ainy, however, remained the pioneer in educating, training, and providing scientific certificates for candidates and, together with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) at Cairo University, the prime advisor for the purchase of new equipment and machines.
