Many hospitals are not equipped yet for proton therapy. Deciding to add a completely new treatment modality to your hospital’s services is not simple. The Philips and IBA solution, however, can simplify the decision process. IBA is a world leader in radiotherapy solutions and Philips in high-quality diagnostics. Both are working towards the same goal of improving the quality of patients’ lives. Their combined effort aims to leverage proton therapy accuracy and high quality imaging (Advanced MRI, PET and CT imaging) with the aim of increasing confidence in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, reducing short- and long-term side-effects and enhancing the quality of life of the patient before, during and after treatment.
The joint proton center solution – including Ambient Experience to make patients feel more at ease during treatment – is already being installed in a variety of hospitals around the world.
For hospitals looking into proton therapy, this not only gives them access to this growing market of patients, it does so with exceptional imaging and treatment solutions.
