ProNova Solutions

Patient-Inspired Proton Therapy System Innovation

ProNova Solutions is an affiliate of Provision Healthcare, a leader in the cancer care industry. We are pioneering oncology solutions with the ProNova SC360 Proton Therapy System. This design is the first and only superconducting compact proton therapy system. It is also the only compact system on the market that offers a full 360˚ treatment angle.

Innovation that CARES

Exceeding Expectations with Improved Patient Treatments and Workflow

Our patient-inspired engineering and design is driving new standards of excellence, improving the patient experience and the clinical treatment workflow. An uncompromising system design stands out from other compact proton therapy systems, offering all of the functionality of a full-size system plus a highly expandable treatment platform. The scalable design can be easily expanded by adding treatment rooms with little impact. The open isocenter cantilever nozzle is a distinguishing feature that improves workflow and accommodates new technology advancements. The SC360 is a smaller, lower-cost, and more energy-efficient proton therapy system providing today’s most important clinical capabilities.

Innovation Without Compromise

ProNova’s system design leverages superconducting magnet technology in the novel compact gantry, dramatically reducing the system size, weight, and power consumption, increasing operational efficiency. Featuring an open treatment room with advanced imaging capabilities, the SC360 delivers essential clinical capabilities and remains impressively scalable.

Performance Matters

Our history of innovation establishes us as a leader in medical technology advancements.  Research and development along with clinical application are integral components of our tested and proven success. The uncompromising design of the ProNova SC360 began with a focus on accuracy, efficiency, and safety. Our patented superconducting magnet technology creates a larger and more useful rectangular treatment room compared to any other system, large or small. At the same time, this technology leverages a smaller footprint, lower energy costs and overall construction costs, and optimizes operational performance.

Leading Technology

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.

STEREOTACTIC BODY RADIATION THERAPY (SBRT) ProNova is capable, has demonstrated, and is currently treating patients clinically with SBRT where five or less fractions are delivered to the tumor of eligible patients.  This hypofractionation is the ability to deliver high dose rates in fewer treatments than pulse-beam technology to the smallest tumors.

ARC RADIATION THERAPY ProNova is capable and has demonstrated ARC Radiation Therapy where a rotational beam approach is used to deliver a prescribed conventional dose in a continuous arc, enabling enhanced conformity and precision.  The SC360 is capable and ready for further development of ARC Radiation Therapy in collaboration with clinical partners.

FLASH RADIATION 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.  Tests with the SC360 show that with no changes in the current configuration, dose rates up to 600 Gy/s can be achieved.  The SC360 is capable and ready for further development of FLASH Radiation Therapy in collaboration with clinical partners.

*ProNova SC360 FLASH Radiation Therapy is available pending regulatory clearance.

Adaptive Design

SCALABLE ProNova’s system design is impressively scalable, with a unique open-room treatment area, independent energy selection, and reduced system footprint, easily accommodating the future addition of treatment rooms to meet business demands.

IMAGING & WORKFLOW OPTIMIZATION Automated image registration enhances the patient experience and optimizes workflow, allowing for imaging at any bed or gantry position, rapid re-planning, and reducing patient exposure.

OPEN ROOM An open treatment room improves access to the patient. Imaging independent of the gantry with large field-of-view CBCT at isocenter provides endless flexibility in workflow and the room is future-proofed to easily accommodate technological advancement.
