ALL FOUR GANTRIES CLINICALLY OPERATIONAL NOW!

The forth and last of our therapy rooms with the large mobile gantries for irradiation of all parts of the body has become clinically operational. The completion, official tests and certification we had already published. Now the RPTC is treating patients on all major therapy sites!
 
The residual completion works are now concentrated on tumor localisation devices at the fifth smaller therapy site (fixed-beam-room), which is intended for the irradiation of eye melanomas and very small intracranial tumors. The proton technology of this smaller equipment is already completed; intended is to improve the local positioning compared to standards up to now by using MRI´s and CT´s combined.
 
Simultaneously the producer of our proton equipment (Varian Medical Systems, Palo Alto, USA) optimizes the software. The proton equipment has already fulfilled all specifications concerning patient- and radiation safety, therapeutic performance (beam intensity, beam penetration, beam precision and beam control precision). As well as treatment capacity specifications (time used per patient, gantry-to-gantry beam relocation interval). The ongoing software developments will indeed further improve the treatment precision compared to the original specifications and will make it even more comfortable to work with the equipment.
