The latest advances in nuclear oncology will be shown as of Saturday in Havana during the 1st International Congress on Nuclear Oncology, which kicked off with experts from around the world in attendance.

Among those advances is a high-tech hybrid equipment to conduct computerized axial tomography (CAT), which is very useful in surgery and radiotherapy to administer radiation directly to tumors without affecting adjacent skin tissues.

Nuclear medicine consists basically of the application of radioactive isotopes to diagnose and treat malignant, as well as benign tumors.

At the event’s opening, which gathers renowned experts from Asia, Europe, Africa, the United States and Cuba, the outgoing President of the World Federation of Nuclear Medicine and Biology Societies, Hans Juerguen Biersack, expressed his admiration for Cuba and praised the island’s advances in the health sector, particularly in the area of nuclear medicine.
