Euromedic Italy has invested in its technology to enhance and improve its service.   A new GE Brightspeed 16 slice CT and three state-of-the-art GE Logic P6 Ultrasounds were installed in Villa Salute in March. The same Ultrasound technology was also installed in MediCare (Zelo Buon Persico, Lodi).  In June, a new GE Optima MR360 1.5 T MRI was installed in Iniziativa Medica.
In early May, Italy organized a medical symposium, “US-guided ablation of liver metastases”, hosted by the Department of Imaging, University of Padova.  The symposium was held by Doctor Luigi Solbiati, M.D. General Hospital of Busto Arsizio, a leading expert in this field and was widely attended by many members of the medical community.
The main topics of discussion at the conference were:
• state of the art interventional ultrasound in cancer therapy
• combining ultrasound with CT and MR imaging in real time is accurate and reliable for the percutaneous ablation of hepatic, renal and adrenal malignancies, according to a new study
• treatment of colorectal k secondary lesions with microwave.
