Gastrointestinal apparatus


Gastrointestinal apparatus tumours

Favourable physical properties of hadrontherapy with carbon ions and its high effectiveness have produced results of exceptional interest in pancreatic carcinoma in liver tumour, and in the already irradiated rectal tumour relapses.
 
TUMOURS OF THE DIGESTIVE APPARATUS
 
Neoplasias of the pancreas
 
Tumours of the pancreas often are inoperable due to the steady adherence to close vascular structures. In this case cure consists of radiation and chemotherapy treatments to increase local control of the disease. But pancreas is situated in a critical region, i.e. in the middle of organs very sensitive to radiations and that may limit its effectiveness in reaching on the tumour doses sufficient to have it regress.
 
Moreover pancreatic tumour also has an intrinsic radio-resistance which reduces the probability of a positive response.
 
The use of Carbon ions has showed the possibility of reaching high doses on tumour preserving close organs and, thanks to its greater biological effectiveness to win the radio-resistance of the tumour.
 
This may allow the control of the growth of the disease and the disappearance of symptoms.
 
What locations we treat:
  • Head Tumours of the exocrine pancreas
  • Body Tumours of the exocrine pancreas
  • Exocrine pancreas tail tumours
What advantages:
  • Greater effectiveness
  • Improved tumour dose conformation
  • Preservation of close organs as kidney, intestine
  • Minimizing the negative effects
  • Return to life immediately after the treatment

HEPATOCELLULAR CARCINOMA-LIVER TUMOUR
 
The inoperable hepatocellular carcinoma for extension of for the patient's comorbidities may be cured with Carbon ions due to their greater biological effectiveness that allows to win common radiation resistance.
 
The use of Carbon ions has showed the possibility of reaching high doses on the tumour with preservation of the liver parenchyma that is extremely sensitive to radiation.
 
This may allow the control of the growth of the disease and the disappearance of symptoms.
 
What locations we treat:
  • Epatocarcinomas
What advantages:
  • Greater effectiveness
  • Better dose conformation on the tumour
  • Preservation of the hepatic parenchyma
  • Reducing to a minimum the negative effects
  • Return to life immediately after the treatment
TUMOUR OF THE RECTUM
 
The local relapse of rectal carcinoma besides being an unfortunate event for the survival of the patient also has a large negative impact on the quality of life in that it is often accompanied by painful symptoms, difficult to handle.
 
A radiation treatment with Carbon ions can represent a possibility of effective care because, thanks to the optimal distribution of the dose, it allows to irradiate only recidivist cells and preserve critical organs such as the small intestine that can be damaged by re-irradiation with severe jeopardy of the patient's quality of life.

What advantages:
  • Local control of the disease
  • Preservation of the already irradiated tissues

titolo visite guidate eng
 
The National Centre for Oncological Hadrontherapy organizes guided tours for students from high schools, universities, research institutes and scientific organizations. Among CNAO missions, besides patients' cure, there is also education to research and innovation, as an effective tool to raise young persons' interest in their future professions.
