An Intraoperative Beta−Probe for Cancer Surgery (Springer by Francesco Collamati

By Francesco Collamati

This thesis makes a speciality of a unique radio-guided surgical procedure approach for whole tumor resections. It describes all facets of the intraoperative probe, in addition to checking out and simulation of the unconventional process. The presentation develops the process from the preliminary thought to life like feasibility stories which have been the topic of a statement of the yankee Society of Nuclear medication. only a yr after finishing this paintings, the method has now been established for the 1st time on a meningioma sufferer, confirming all the predictions made during this thesis.
