Hadrotherapy might be the last chance option for patients with cancers growing deep in the body or surrounded by very sensitive organs. The Italian National Center of Oncological Hadrotherapy (CNAO) in Pavia is a synchrotron based center for the treatment of tumors with protons and carbon ion beams. The result of this sophisticated technique is strongly affected by the beam delivery performances. A powerful on-line system to monitor and deliver particles inside the target will be available at CNAO.
