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.

SCIC: Superconducting Isochronous Cyclotron ProNova’s superconducting isochronous cyclotron is manufactured at ProNova and is integrated into the FDA-approved and clinically demonstrated ProNova SC360 to provide up to 1000nA high-current beam, that supports rapid hypofractionation, breath-hold treatments and clinical FLASH deliveries.

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.
