Louvain-la-Neuve, Milan, Italy, April 26, 2019 – IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A., EURONEXT), the world's leading provider of proton therapy solutions for the treatment of cancer, will showcase its technology leadership in proton therapy at the 38th Annual European Society for Radiotherapy & Oncology (ESTRO) Meeting and Exhibition being held in Milan from 26-29 April 2019.
Proton therapy is considered one of the most advanced forms of radiation therapy. When investing in a technology that will last for over 30 years, the selection of the right partner is a crucial step in the buying process. Not only is it key to secure the performance of the system, it is also essential to secure the future technology evolution to maximize the return on the investment made in proton therapy.
During the 38th ESTRO, IBA will display the most advanced technologies coming to proton therapy with a focus on motion management, Proton Arc Therapy, and Proton Flash Therapy. These topics will be presented at booth #3500 as well as at the IBA Proton Therapy Conference.
