Humanitas Proton center in Milan
Advanced radiotherapy unit (proton therapy) for the Instituto Clinico Humanitas
CONTEXT & ISSUES
The European Institute of Oncology in Milan has begun construction work on the IEO Proton Center, its new proton therapy centre. This technology is the most advanced form of radiotherapy for treating cancer patients. Covering an area of 3,200 m2, the new facility consists of two buildings: a bunker to house the radiotherapy bay and a building to accommodate patients. Artelia carried out the feasibility studies and design for this facility, which is expected to be operational in 2023 and able to treat up to 800 patients a year.
