As part of the events dedicated to the Science Day – 2022, the first science city of Russia – Obninsk – and the leading institutions of the city were visited by a representative delegation consisting of the Minister of Health of the Russian Federation Mikhail Murashko, the Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation Valery Falkov, the Governor of the Kaluga Region Vladislav Shapshi, the President of the Kurchatov Institute Mikhail Kovalchuk, Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Budget and financial markets Anatoly Artamonov and the mayor of Obninsk Tatiana Leonova.
On March 19, an expanded meeting of the Regional Coordination Council was held with the support of the Governor of the Kaluga Region for Science, innovative technologies and education. Russian scientists, statesmen and business representatives discussed issues of food security and the use of genetic and radiation technologies in the production of agricultural products.
The team of the A. F. Tsyba MRSC, headed by the Director General of the NMIC of Radiology of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Andrey Kaprin, hosted distinguished guests in order to demonstrate the latest technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of oncological diseases. At the beginning of the route, delagation visited the department of X-ray surgery and endovascular technologies in oncology, on the basis of which procedures for radioembolization of the liver, chemoembolization for HCC, head and neck tumors, cervical cancer and metastatic liver damage, coronary angiography and embolization for bleeding are carried out. In addition, the guests visited the department of high-precision diagnostics, equipped with the most modern CT and MRI devices of expert level. Accurate diagnosis in a relatively short time, studies at a low dose of radiation provide comfort to patients. The guests were particularly interested in the department of proton and photon therapy. Equipped with the latest linear accelerators, the department has a high throughput and provides radiation therapy to more than 200 patients per day.
In an informal conversation, the guests and specialists of the NMIC of Radiology discussed projects for the production of Russian samples of heavy equipment, in particular, the ONYX 6MeV accelerator and the project of a toroidal remote radiation therapy complex based on electron accelerators with Torus energy. According to experts, the latter can become a high-tech and productive replacement for outdated gamma-therapeutic devices and foreign accelerators.
Earlier, the NMIC of Radiology of the Ministry of Health of Russia and the Kurchatov Institute signed an agreement on cooperation in the implementation of the Federal Scientific and Technical Program for the Development of Synchrotron and Neutron Research.
