HYPERSCAN: Pencil Beam Scanning Delivered at Hyper Speed

Introducing HYPERSCAN , Pencil Beam Scanning Delivery HYPERSCAN enables tumor volumes to be scanned in a matter of seconds, benefiting from the MEVION S250's direct and efficient beam generation. The result is a fast Pencil Beam Scanning enabling robust Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy treatment delivery that is much less sensitive to patient and tumor motions, ultimately increasing the efficacy of the treatment procedure. The MEVION S250 proton therapy platform with HYPERSCAN allows you to treat with precision, accuracy and reproducibility at unparalleled speed with uncompromised beam quality. Designed for greater access by any size cancer care facility, the MEVION S250 significantly reduces the complexity, size, and cost associated with conventional proton therapy systems. The MEVION S250 is specifically engineered as upgrade-ready to continue providing the most advanced proton therapy treatment available today as well as tomorrow. Key Features : Field-Upgradeable; Streamlined Clinical Workflow with Full OIS Integration; High-Accuracy Beam Pointing with Submillimeter Position Tracking; Fast Volumetric and Layer Rescanning Capabilities; Supports Standard Gating Interface for Beam On/Off Hold
