radiation oncology

February 2015

The facility has passed the government safety inspection for particle radiotherapy.
Currently we have succeeded in acceleration of the carbon-ion beam with maximum energy 430 MeV/u. Further the energy control on 11-steps and the scanning control of pencil-beam have been achieved.

5. Progress of Construction

Autumn 2014

Facility building was completed.
