Numerous medical diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are based on detection either of particles (electrons, positrons, gamma, x-rays, alpha-particles) or photons of light (visible or infrared). Traditionally the technologies used for that are spin-off from particle and nuclear physics (sometimes with significant delay). Our principal goal is the development of new devices and novel procedures based on the most recent technologies leading to breakthrough in terms of miniaturization, sensitivity, efficiency, precision, user-friendliness and cost.
Our 30 years experience at CERN allows us to access the cutting edge technology in particle detection and optoelectronics. Therefore, Forimtech S.A. can profit from this exceptional background, and together with the skills acquired during the last 11 years is able to bring ideas into the final products, thus enhancing the efficiency of cancer treatment by implementing new developments into medical devices.
