Harnessing the Power of Protons with the MEVION S250 Proton Therapy Machine
Harnessing the Power of Protons with Advanced Technology
University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center and the Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio, use the next generation of proton beam delivery systems – the MEVION S250 from Mevion Medical Systems. This is a first-of-its-kind, compact model that more efficiently and cost-effectively delivers powerful cancer-fighting proton beam radiation therapy.
The MEVION S250 system combines the most advanced proton therapy technologies:
- Precise positioning of the six-degree robotic couch allows the patient to be positioned at the optimal treatment angle.
- Patient positioning is confirmed through the image guidance system prior to each treatment session.
