His will be the main topic at the workshop that Prof. Filippo Alongi, Director of the U.O.C. of Oncological Radiotherapy of the Sacro Cuore Don Calabria hospital in Negrar (Verona), will provide during Innovabiomed.
The Don Calabria Institute uses the latest technological equipment for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer diseases. In particular, Oncology Radiotherapy was the first in the world to test a technique (Hyperarc) for the treatment of brain metastases in a single session of a few minutes. The U.O.C. treats over 1,200 cancer patients in a year, providing a huge and significant scientific production of publications on clinical and technological research in Oncology.
Using the most advanced techniques such as IMRT and VMAT through Rapidarc® and Hyperarc techniques (the last one limited to cerebral pathologies), Negrar Oncological Radiotherapy performs radiant treatments of absolute precision and with higher radiation doses even target volumes of complex shape and / or located in close proximity to critical structures.
