Another treatment unit (Gantry 3) is currently under construction. Differently to the existing treatment units, Gantry 3 is built in research collaboration with Varian Medical Systems and will be integrated into the existing accelerator facility at PSI. On a technical level Gantry 3 will offer the same treatment capabilities as Gantry 2. The financing of the Gantry 3 is provided by the ‘Lotteriefonds‘ of the Canton of Zurich.
