Radiotherapy experts at The XIV Radiotherapy Brazilian Society Congress convinced that LinaTech's advanced and cost-effective cancer treatment products a great fit for Latin America

June 20-23, 2012

CURITIBA, Brazil -- Just like in many developing countries, access to advanced health care is hard to come by for many in Latin America. LinaTech was able to convince cancer treatment experts from around Latin America that its cost-effective radiotherapy products could assist with providing higher quality and much more advanced cancer treatments.

Purchasing a new linear accelerator is not an option for many public and private cancer treatment centers. The purchase of a new linear accelerator can be upwards of 1.5 million dollars. LinaTech wants to help those cancer treatment centers to advance and improve the quality of their patient treatments.

Once a 106 leaf DMLC and IGRT system are added to an existing linear accelerator, that cancer center can now offer advanced cancer treatments that are equivalent to that of new million dollar linear accelerators. The interest in LinaTech's solutions from radiotherapy experts and distributors at the XIV Radiotherapy Brazilian Society Congress was immense. Quotes for the acquisition of products have already been requested by treatment centers in Brazil. Also, distributors of radiotherapy products in Latin America have already agreed to help LinaTech educate cancer clinics about its products.
