Pictured during a recent training visit to the Sordina IORT Technologies (SIT) manufacturing site in Aprilia in Rome are Vertec product specialist David White, SIT vice ceo Francesco Zanetti, physicist/director Giuseppe Felici, Vertec product specialist Gavin Adcock and SIT engineer Mariangela Padalino. The system shown is a Liac 12 linear accelerator.
Vertec has signed a partnership agreement with SIT to sell and support its range of intra-operative radiation therapy (IORT) systems in the UK. “Many studies testify to the effectiveness of IORT and much interest has already been shown in the UK by breast cancer treatment centres,” said Vertec.
