PRONOVA SC360 PROTON THERAPY SYSTEM The SC360 is the only superconducting compact proton therapy system that maintains a full 360° treatment angle and fully accessible treatment at isocenter. This offers uncompromisable performance and a distinctive open treatment room. The proprietary superconducting achromat technology operates at 4 Tesla and allows an extremely compact 360° footprint. The even greater advantage is an open isocenter and rectangular treatment room that future proofs SC360 facilities.
ADVANCED IMAGING Integrated-dual energy CBCT with closed loop couch flex correction and 3D/3D registration offers unparalleled precision and an ultra large field-of-view (up to 70cm x29cm with field stitching), supporting advanced IGRT and the capability to treat multiple fields with one image. Non-isocentric and partial arc modes ensure that patients can be imaged at isocenter in any setup pose and at any gantry angle. Available 2D planar imaging and 2D/3D registration can be used for fast position verification. Adaptive mesh-based image protocols (x-ray beam is collimated to the patient contour) reduce patient dose. The imager is also capable of fluoroscopy mode for continuous tumor-motion tracking and fan-beam mode for diagnostic quality images in future releases.
FAST-SCANNING IMPT Fast-scanning IMPT beam technology allows for extremely fast layer painting and repainting, utilizing a high frequency scanning magnet up to 10 times faster than the competition. This is useful for faster treatments and less susceptibility to motion.
INDEPENDENT-ENERGY SELECTION SYSTEM Another innovative and unique ProNova feature is independent energy selection for each treatment room. This provides instantaneous room-switching and greatly reduces patient treatment times, improving clinical capabilities. Future applications include intra-fraction room switching to improve workflow and throughput.
HYPOFRACTIONATION High-current, continuous beam cyclotron can deliver high dose rates, delivering the same dose in fewer treatments than pulse-beam technology.
FLASH THERAPY* ProNova’s high extraction and transmission efficiency coupled with the smallest spot size on the market allow SC360 to achieve FLASH dose rates (>40 Gy/s) with reduced beam current from the cyclotron. ProNova’s open treatment room design has clear advantage for using ridge filters and range shifters to delivery volumetric plans with a single energy layer.
*FLASH therapy is a feature planned for future development. This feature has not received FDA 510(k) clearance and is not yet commercially available.
