Since 2012 the “Intarbim” apparatus, aprobated in the world’s leading oncological clinics, was brought in the Clinic, which implies ultra-modern intraoperative radiation therapy for oncologic patients. In the course of operation, after the removal of tumor formation, a specially selected applicator of intrabeam will be placed in the focus of the disease and irradiate the patient during 20-30 minutes. The method allows the tumor cells to be destroyed in the 1-2 cm diameter around the applicator, which prevents the development of recurrence. Unlike radiation therapy, in this case, the irradiation is directly taking place in the focus of desease, that protects healthy tissues from unnecessary exposure.
