  • History

    Established in 2010.

    The TARGIT Academy was established in 2010 and is codirected

    by Professor Mohammed Keshtgar from the Royal Free and University College London, UK and Professor Frederik Wenz from the University Medical Centre Mannheim & University of Heidelberg.


    It is essential that as new centers take up the innovative TARGIT technology worldwide, patients are treated at the same level everywhere and that there is a quality assurance and training program in place to ensure that the powerful IORT technology is implemented appropriately.


    The IORT technique is relatively straightforward, but the success of this technology requires attention to details. The faculty from a multidisciplinary background who have been involved with this

    technology from the outset have extensive experience in performing the procedure and providing advice in difficult cases.
