ACI’s 2nd Annual Proton Therapy Centers

Date: 22nd February 2012 - 24th February 2012 Location: Hampton - Virginia - USA

A Two-Day Forum highlighting the most current real world case studies, research finding, organizational models and outcomes from Proton Therapy centers and facilities.

Featuring a Tour of the Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute

The Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute is the largest and most advanced freestanding proton therapy facility in the world. The Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute is comprised of five treatment rooms, with four gantry treatment rooms and one fixed-beam treatment room. Gantries are 90-ton full circle rotational machines designed to deliver the proton beam at any angle prescribed by the physician. The beam is accelerated to therapeutic energies by a cyclo- tron, and delivered via an evacuated beam line and magnet transport system. All treatment rooms feature multi-axis robotic positioning, gantry rolling floors, and a host of additional state-of-the-art technologies. The Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute includes a separate sixth research room, where scientific collaborations have been built with national laboratories and other institu- tions. Nearly 100,000 square feet in size, the Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute was expressly designed for a positive patient experience and features abundant natural lighting and a garden setting along a small lake. The Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute is equipped for beam delivery by the Ion Beam Applications, S.A. (IBA) company based in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. The building was designed by VOA Associates and constructed by Armada-Hoffler.
