News and Opinions About Our Industry

In the last few weeks, Pyrexar products were being presented at conferences in Warsaw, Poland; Miami, Florida; Barcelona, Spain; and Münster, Germany.  So thankful for our great partners educating oncologists and physicists, all over the world, to the benefits of hyperthermia in the treatment of cancer. We wanted to share a few images of these events with you.

ESHO - Warsaw, Poland

Pyrexar ESHO Award

2019 Pyrexar ESHO Award

The ESHO-Pyrexar Award, presented by Dr. Sennewald Medizintechnik Gmbh, is awarded annually for outstanding contributions to hyperthermic oncology, education, and scientific achievement. This year's recipient is Prof. Dr. med. Lars Lindner.  Dr. Lindner is a respected thermal oncologist and researcher, well known for the landmark study "Effect of Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Plus Regional Hyperthermia on Long-term Outcomes Among Patients With Localized High-Risk Soft Tissue Sarcoma" published in Jama earlier this year.  We congratulate him and his team for their contributions to thermal medicine. More information about ESHO (European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology) can be found here.


SEOR - Barcelona, Spain

Pyrexar at SEOR 2019

This was our first time at the SEOR (Spanish Society of Radiation Oncology) in Spain, represented by our distributor Magna Medic Systems based in Málaga, Spain.  The organization has been making tremendous strides in the introduction of hyperthermia to oncologists in the region.


DEGRO - Münster, Germany

Pyrexar represented at the DEGRO 2019

Our distribution partner, Dr. Sennewald Medizintechnik Gmb, was a silver sponsor at DEGRO (German Society of Radiation Oncology) and held a lunch symposium focused on reimbursement issues in Germany.


ABS - Miami Florida

Pyrexar Medical exhibiting at the ABS 2019

This was Pyrexar's first engagement at the ABS (American Brachytherapy Society).  Our goal was to demonstrate that adding hyperthermia as an adjunct to brachytherapy boosted the effectiveness of this radiotherapy treatment without interrupting workflow. It was an excellent show and we will be back next year.
