The new equipment will be used by up to 250 patients per year, and will also be available to researchers. The Centre Antoine Lacassagne treats 5,600 patients per year, and is a critical cancer center in the local area. This 4D scanner will bring the latest innovations to patients, who will benefit from receiving top of the line care using cutting edge technology. Additionally, the equipment will complement their new high-energy proton therapy facility recently installed.
The event was attending by approximately 50 guests, including representatives of the local medical community, journalists, and representatives from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Joël Guigay, Director of the Centre, gave brief remarks discussing the benefits of proton-therapy and the place of the 4D scanner in the medical process. Program Officer Sandra Tosello spoke on behalf of the SNF.
