An Intraoperative Beta−Probe for Cancer Surgery by Francesco Collamati

By Francesco Collamati

This thesis makes a speciality of a singular radio-guided surgical procedure strategy for entire tumor resections. It describes all elements of the intraoperative probe, in addition to trying out and simulation of the unconventional method. The presentation develops the strategy from the preliminary inspiration to reasonable feasibility stories which have been the topic of a statement of the yank Society of Nuclear medication. only a yr after finishing this paintings, the strategy has now been proven for the 1st time on a meningioma sufferer, confirming the entire predictions made during this thesis.
