"With this center, there will no longer be a need for us to go to Brazil, Argentina, Chile, or other countries to perform treatments," Arce said in his opening speech.

This center has high-tech scanners that use nuclear energy to accurately detect cancer through images, it also has two linear accelerators, a brachytherapy area, another for chemotherapy, a simulation scanner, and a pharmacy, according to data from the Bolivian Agency for Nuclear Energy (ABEN) cited by the Ministry of Health.

Ultra Controlo has worked with INTESPROG S.R.L to deliver the highest quality systems to date to the new Nuclear Medicine and Radiotherapy Center in Bolivia. We have installed our oil-free medical air plant - ULTRAAR SC, our Hospital Industrial Compressed Air - ACIH, and different manifolds.

The new complex will have the capacity to serve 120 patients in one day and it is predicted that it will be able to provide its services to 36,000 people a year.

"This technology that we are inaugurating here, in one of the highest cities on the planet, is the best technology in South American countries," Arce said.

This will be the first of three centers of this type to be inaugurated in the Andean nation: El Alto, La Paz and Santa Cruz de las Sierras.
