Advanced medical center in Tunisia is now offering one of the latest technological breakthroughs ever made for treating cancerous diseases.

Recently, the Centre Médical Ibn Khaldoun held an inauguration ceremony for this ground-breaking revolution: the medical linear accelerator, a machine that is considered as the latest technology on the international scale to treat tumors using X-rays. While the center holds scientific sessions annually, the recent event is making global headlines as it is the only machine on the national level to make undeniable progress in cancer research.
