See fast line scanning PBS in clinical use in Sumitomo proton centers

Meet us at ASTRO in San Diego at SUMITOMO booth 2630. Fast line scanning with a high dose rate allows ultrafast treatments of all targets.

See IMPT the way it was meant to be!

Scanning in proton therapy (PBS, IMPT etc.) has many names and different meanings, and there are confusing claims and hype by some vendors about the pencil beam scanning techniques they employ. At ASTRO you can see for yourselves the proven, the fastest, the most advanced scanning technique in particle therapy. It is called Line Scanning, by Sumitomo Heavy Industries. As opposed to spot scanning (raster) the SHI Line Scanning is a continuous beam which paints the target volume very very fast with the desired dose in all dimensions. Welcome to the SHI booth 2630 to speak with us at ASTRO. See you in San Diego!
