Greater well-being is possible. The IMOR Institute, Medical Institute of Oncological Radiotherapy, is a specialized center which is dedicated to helping oncology patients, and its main mission is to provide personalized assistance to the patients and to put the most advanced technical tools of the moment at their disposal.
The IMOR Institute began its activity in 1999, offering its oncology services, radiotherapy treatments and total medical care to all those who needed it, and it has helpedmore than 12,000 patients, including more than 3,000 brachytherapy treatments.
Techniques – Treatments
We offer cancer treatments that allow greater well-being and lesser side effects. Our Center offers the most modern therapeutic techniques for different types of cancer, including ionizing radiation which is the specialty of the Radiation Oncology:
It is a very precise and fast radiotherapy treatment since it is delivered in a single fraction after surgical intervention on the tumor. In addition, it allows direct visualization of the bed that should be irradiated and it is not invasive: it leaves the adjacent healthy tissues out of the where it acts, targeting only the cancer cells.
Among other applications, HDR brachytherapy is usually used to fight against prostate cancer by combining it with external conformal radiation therapy and/or hormone therapy.
For the treatment of prostate cancer, we can also administer brachytherapy with I-125 seeds. A treatment that allows greater local radiation in a smaller area so that it does not damage healthy tissues.
Information about our radiotherapy treatments
Earlier you start cancer treatment, more efficient is. Often, the symptoms of cancer can vary substantially depending on the location and its state. Therefore, in IMOR Institute, we give all the possible information to all the people who contact us.
