AccSys Technology, Inc signs its second agreement to provide a high current, constant wave, Linear Accelerator for use in Boron Neutron Capture Therapy

Pleasanton California, August 22, 2012– AccSys Technology is very proud to announce reaching two agreements with Cancer Intelligence Care Systems (CICS) to provide AccSys’ latest Linear Accelerators (Linacs), high current, constant wave, Linacs. The Linac will be operated by CICS as a major component of a Boron Neutron Capture Therapy system for use at National Cancer Center, and Edogawa Hospital in Tokyo, Japan.  

This linac system is designed to provide proton beams with 20mA CW at 2.5MeV that will strike a CICS Lithium target to produce neutrons.  These neutrons will be used in Boron Capture Therapy. These fully integrated systems typically consist of a carefully designed and selected combination of a Radio Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ) linac and a high poweredRF power system tailored to the specific requirements of the application. AccSys Linacs are an ideal match for medical applications such as Boron Neutron Capture Therapy where the Linac’s high reliability results in the necessary availability levels required for patient treatment.
