Applications of nuclear beams for cancer treatment

The CSFNSM has contributed to the Physics applied to medicine on two interconnected lines:

  • Advanced experimental methodologies for the dosimetry of ionizing radiations interacting with human tissue.

  • Applications of nuclear (protons) particles beams for solid tumors treatment.


These researches have been developed within the project CATANA (Hadrontherapy Centre and Advanced Nuclear Applications), carried out in close collaboration with the Southern National Laboratories of INFN, the Institutes of Radiology, Ophthalmology, General Biology, Internal Medicine and the Department of Chemical Sciences of University of Catania. These studies have allowed to activate in Catania, the first and (until recently) the only center of hadron therapy in Italy. your social media marketing partner
