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
Improved tumour dose conformation
Preservation of close organs as kidney, intestine
- Minimizing the negative effects
- Return to life immediately after the treatment
