LINEAR PARTICLE ACCELERATOR

Radiotherapy is one of the most advanced methods of neoplastic diseases treatment. To the proven therapeutic efficiency it adds:

  • selective treatment of injured tissues
  • painless therapy
  • restrained side effects
  • integration with the most advanced medical imaging techniques.

The radiotherapy can be:

  • radical (primary healing) as an alternative to surgery (organ preservation, inoperability);
  • pre-operation adjuvant with a cytoreductive purpose (the achievement of operability);
  • intra-operation adjuvant;
  • post-operation adjuvant (to improve il controllo loco-regionale)
  • palliative treatment (to reduce painful neurological, haemorrhagic symptoms, dispnea).

The usage of finely collimated ionizing radiation affords to deal with tissues producing regression. The patient is not radioactive in any way and can perform a normal daily life. 

Thanks to software of the programming volumetric treatment and micro multi-leaf collimator the method achieves a degree of precision that can provide in certain circumstances the same results as a surgical ablation (stereotactic radiotherapy).


MAGNETIC RESONANCE

The unique in Italy high-field MRI and Linear particle accelerator with micro multilamellar collimator in clinical veterinary, our Centre provides its service referring both to the Vet exam (first level test) structures with low-field MRI equipment exam (consulting).

The high-field MR release a very scenic examination in a short time (a few minutes), often avoiding the anesthesia, and particularly by providing accurate and useful diagnostic material for the clinic. The functional MR is an example of how the high-field MR is distinguished by wealth of information obtainable in a short time. Methods:

  • diffusion
  • perfusion
  • tractography
  • spectroscopy  


COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY

Tomography refers to imaging by sections or sectioning, through the use of any kind of penetrating wave. Unlike conventional CT, the new 64-slice spiral CT allows tests with essentially three-dimensional representations of anatomical structures using color codes. The acquisition is done in seconds so as to ensure, even in patients less cooperative, the execution of tests with the patient awake or under simple sedation, reserving general anesthesia only in aggressive patients or those requiring invasive procedures, such as CT guided deep biopsy.
