ProTom International to Install Three-Room Proton Therapy System in China

October 24, 2017 — ProTom International Holding Co. announced that it has signed a contract for the purchase and installation of a proton therapy system at the Boao Evergrande International Hospital in China's Hainan Province. ProTom will equip the hospital with its Radiance 330 Proton Therapy System three-room configuration, including two gantry-rooms and one fixed-beam room.

Using Fidelity Beam Scanning, Radiance 330 delivers proton therapy treatment with the precision of pencil-beam scanning and the power of integrated imaging. The system's compact and modular design has the smallest synchrotron footprint on the market, according to ProTom, making it fully adaptable and customizable. The novel design of Radiance 330's synchrotron also enables the radiation therapy system to produce fewer neutrons and to run more efficiently, generating less heat and electricity than other proton beam therapy systems, the company claims.

Boao Evergrande International Hospital, scheduled to open in 2018, is located within the Hainan Boao Lecheng International Medical Tourism Pilot Zone. The hospital will focus on cancer treatment and prevention and will leverage the zone's unique policies to bring advanced tumor treatment therapy, equipment, technology, and talent to China.

The Chinese Central Government has given approval for the Boao Evergrande International Hospital to establish a proton therapy center.  Scheduled to open in late 2019, the proton therapy center will be the first in Hainan Province.

It is anticipated that more than 2,000 patients each year will be treated with cutting-edge proton therapy treatment at Boao Evergrande International Hospital's proton therapy center.
