B dot Medical unveils scanning magnet for proton therapy

By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

September 10, 2021 -- B dot Medical has manufactured a scanning magnet for a compact proton therapy system currently under development.

After conducting an energization test, the company confirmed that the magnet generated a magnetic field. This capability paves the way for high-speed scanning irradiation and respiratory-gated irradiation on a proton cancer therapy system, according to the vendor.

B dot Medical will now conduct a proton beam test in combination with a superconducting magnet in order to apply for regulatory clearance in Japan.
