By adding fully integrated cone beam imaging to Mevion’s suite of in-room image guidance capabilities, Mevion and Medphoton aim to simplify workflow and provide more precise and efficient treatment delivery.

“The agreement with Mevion provides us the opportunity to integrate the industry's most compact proton therapy system, the MEVION S250 Series, with our slim, multi-purpose in-room CBCT system, providing large field-of-view, cutting edge acquisition speed, spatial resolution and outstanding low contrast visibility at very low doses,” said Heinz Deutschmann, CEO and founder of Medphoton. “We believe the products will complement each other and enable clinicians to truly optimize the proton treatments they can provide their patients.”
