What’s in a State-of-the-art Proton Facility

In- room CT scanners or X-ray machines with cone- beam CT function allow precise and accurate matching of the target volume. In addition, our treatment table is controlled with a robotic system that transfers patient from in- room CT to treatment area.

With the use of these equipment, we are able to accomplish more precise proton therapy for our patients.

The latest proton therapy machines have ‘pencil-beam’ scanning which involves moving a small or ‘spot’ proton beam to ‘paint’ the tumour precisely in three dimensions. Simply put, it is like performing IMRT with the added natural advantage of the proton beam.
