The Danfysik PT Synchrotron provides high energy protons and carbon ions for cancer treatment facilities
We are a leading commercial provider of components for accelerator systems and subsystem solutions for the newest, second generation Particle Therapy (PT) facilities. Second generation PT additionally uses light ions instead of protons used in the first generation technology. In addition, second generation, synchrotron based facilities offer a wide range of ions for flexible treatments at ultimate precision and efficiency. Newest research in the field has indicated that heavier ions as Carbon, Hydrogen or Oxygen ions are more efficient due to a higher radiobiological effect.
Danfysik accelerator technology and components has been applied in two world class Particle Theraphy facilities, at the Marburger Ionenstrahl-Therapiezentrum (MIT) in Marburg, Germany and at the SPHIC hospital in Shanghai, China.
With particle therapy beams of protons or carbon ions are used to efficiently kill the cancer tumor cells with millimeter precision
