Proton therapy is at the forefront of cancer care today. All of Varian's ProBeam® proton systems deliver the most sophisticated
type of proton therapy currently available: intensity-modulated proton therapy (IMPT), delivered by pencil beam scanning.
Here are some of the major components of Varian's proton systems:
The sophisticated patient positioning system moves in all directions.
- 360 ° Rotating Gantry
The gantry rotates 190° in each direction offering 360° treatment rotations around the patient.
This allows treatment at any angle while minimizing the need to reposition the patient.
It is easier for the patient, and allows faster, more efficient treatment times than other proton delivery solutions.
The ProBeam beam transport system focuses and shapes the beam and guides it to the treatment room,
creating the small beam size necessarily for IMPT and enabling clinicians to target very small spots across the full energy range
The isochronous superconducting cyclotron uses electromagnetic waves to accelerate proton beams.
