Health: TOP-IMPLART, progress in cancer treatment

ENEA is experimenting with a new technology allowing improved diagnostics in hadron therapy, a state-of-the-art technique for curing cancer. Thanks to the new solid - state luminescent radiation detectors, it will be possible to determine more accurately the shape and energy of proton beams, selectively targeting tumor cells and avoiding damage to healthy surrounding tissue.
