New flash radiation therapy for cancer

In the fight against cancer, the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) relies on a method that is new worldwide: the so-called flash radiation therapy. To this end, the hospital wants to work with partners to develop a device over the next two years that is considered revolutionary.

Jean Bourhis, chief oncologist at the Lausanne University Hospital CHUV, on Friday at the presentation of flash radiotherapy.

The device will be manufactured by the medical technology company Theryq. This is based on the technology of the European nuclear research center CERN near Geneva, as the three partners jointly announced on Friday. Flash radiation therapy uses very high energy electron beams.

The aim is to be able to treat resistant tumors better and reduce side effects. With the use of the device to be developed, the irritation caused by radiation therapy will be reduced to a few milliseconds, it was said on Friday. This would protect the healthy body tissue.
