This was the fourth system sold by Mevion in 2018 and the first sale by Mevion in the Asia-Pacific region.

As the global leader in compact proton therapy systems, Mevion was the first company to innovate this new approach to proton therapy and continues to transform the industry and patient care with HYPERSCAN Pencil Beam Scanning.

Cleared by the FDA in 2017, HYPERSCAN improves on existing scanning capabilities to deliver conformal fields of therapeutic radiation therapy to tumors faster and with more precision.

“Mevion is proud to partner with Allcure Kangtai to deliver advanced proton therapy systems for Chinese cancer patients,” said Tina Yu, CEO of Mevion Medical Systems.

“Our proton systems have been installed and are treating patients in leading cancer centers in Europe and the U.S. Today, nearly 80 percent of active single-room compact proton centers in the U.S. use Mevion systems. We look forward to becoming the preferred partner for leading cancer centers in the Asia-Pacific region as well.”

Mevion Medical Systems is the leading provider of compact proton therapy systems for use in radiation treatment for cancer patients. Mevion is based in Littleton, Massachusetts, with a presence in Europe and China.
