Gantry 3

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.

The clinical collaboration of this treatment unit will be done with the Radiation Oncology Department of the University Hospital of Zürich. Gantry 3 is planned to be brought into clinical service mid of 2018.
