Synchrotron will be maintained in Primorye in course of project of Center of Proton Therapy
Synchronous studies are widely applied in many scientific branches ranging from investigations of the structure of materials to new pharmaceutical drugs and therapy of cancer cells. In particular, the high intensity of irradiation assists in the improvement of the quality of pictures during angiography and mammography which are applied for tracking the tumor at early stages. Also, this peculiarity allows for influencing mostly diseased cells without a negative impact on the health.
«The construction of the synchrotron on the island Russkij is scheduled within a framework of the second stage of the project realization. The company „Shvabe“ intends to build in Primorye a Center of Proton Therapy with an annual acceptance rate of more than thousand patients. Now, it is already announced that the realization will be done in collaboration with Kurchatov Institute,» - the vice-governor Pavel Serebryakov commented.
