On the top of intravital microscopy, in vivo optical imaging, MRI, PET/CT and microCT our facility is also providing preclinical radiotherapy thanks to our focalized irradiator XRAD SmART at agora.

Lately we had the chance to welcome Adrien Arrigo to our facility. Adrien performed is master of science in public health at Lausanne and as experience on clinical radiotherapy. He joined the IVIF last June and in no time could set up Quality controls and protocols for proper preclinical Radiotherapy.

He accepted to also give you a talk so that you can have a good overview of the radiotherapy and what can be done in preclinical at our facility.
