Laser-­‐enabled mini-­‐invasive treatments of tumors: from thermal ablation to photo-dynamic therapies

Maxwell room, 5th floor of DET

Laser is emerging as a flexible tool for the treatment of tumors, enabling both thermal abla@on procedures of solid tumors and photo-­‐dynamic therapies. The seminar reviews recent progresses obtained by an Italo ­‐ French team.
