Cancer is worldwide one of the most widespread health problems. Each year huge efforts are made in cancer research to improve the traditional cancer therapy approach which is based on conventional radio therapy (X-ray) and chemotherapy.
A promising new development in non-invasive cancer treatment is that of accelerator-based treatment methods using highly energized particles. Particle therapy techniques are the new frontier of cancer radiation therapy. Particle therapy makes use of proton, carbon ion or neutron beams, all of which are heavier particles with a more favorable dose-depth distribution and increased relative biological efficiency in the target volume as compared to the classical photon, or X-ray, therapy.
Ampegon RF amplifier systems for cancer treatment applications are built for highest availability and reliability, from the integrated LLRF system up to the final amplifier stage. The equipment impresses by its ease of operation, fast maintenance and short repair time. We assure highest quality in design and production in order to meet the challenging demands of medical treatment facilities.
