Gantry 3

Another treatment unit (Gantry 3) has started patient operation in July 2018. Differently to the existing treatment units, Gantry 3 was built in research collaboration with Varian Medical Systems and has been integrated into the existing accelerator facility at PSI. On a technical level Gantry 3 offers the same treatment capabilities as Gantry 2. The financing of the Gantry 3 has been provided by the ‘Lotteriefonds‘ of the Canton of Zurich.

The clinical collaboration of this treatment unit will be done with the Radiation Oncology Department of the University Hospital of Zürich.
