Varian Announces Multi-room Configuration for ProBeam 360 Proton Therapy System

September 20, 2019 — Varian announced its ProBeam 360° proton therapy system is now available in a multi-room configuration. The ProBeam 360° system is what Varian calls the smallest multi-room system available for sale, with up to a 30 percent smaller footprint than the company's previous multi-room solution.

The ProBeam 360° system in a multi-room configuration allows cancer centers to tailor the system to meet their clinical, research and capacity needs. Treatment room options include 360-degree rotating gantries and fixed beam rooms. Research rooms are also available to satisfy a variety of non-clinical proton beam applications. In addition to the smaller footprint, the multi-room ProBeam 360° system occupies up to 50 percent less volume, reducing vault construction costs by approximately 25 percent.

The ProBeam 360° system features a powerful particle accelerator to treat cancer, a 360-degree gantry for clinical efficiency, and iterative cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging and high-definition pencil-beam scanning for high precision. The system can also provide clinicians a viable path to potential next-generation treatments such as FLASH therapy. (FLASH therapy is under preclinical research and is not available for clinical use, with no guarantee of future commercialization.)
