The company, parent to Hitachi Medical Systems, will work with Hokkaido University to develop the system under a grant from the Funding Program for World-Leading Innovative R&D on Science and Technology (FIRST Program), a national project sponsored by the Japanese government, Hitachi said.
Hokkaido University in Sapporo and Hitachi will combine real-time tumor-tracking technology and spot-scanning irradiation technology into a PBT system that will target respiratory tumors. The new facility will be constructed next to Hokkaido University Hospital; the project will begin in 2011 and be completed in March 2014. When the new facility is finished, it will be used as part of patient treatment at Hokkaido University Hospital, according to Hitachi.
