Abstract [en]

This presentation briefly covers the ongoing development of a therapy center with multiple simultaneous radiation modalities at Karolinska university hospital. The hearth of the facility will most likely be a superconducting cyclotron capable of delivering around 400 MeV/u carbon ions simultaneously to two separate excentric gantries who service four treatment rooms each. A number of different stable ions will be available ranging from hydrogen to oxygen but also PET emitting C11 ions and possibly B8 the lightest existing PET emitter. Several treatment rooms will also be equipped for narrow scanned high energy photon and electron beam treatments and a light ion research facility for physics and biology studies will be set up on two separate beamlines. The centre will include an advanced PET-CT and MRSI based diagnostic centre on the same floor and close to both the ion treatment facility and the high energy photon and electron facility. By docking the stereotactic treatment coach both to the treatment units and before and after the treatment to the diagnostic PET-CT units, iso dose delivery can be rapidly examined by imaging the radiation induced C11 and O15 activity produced during the treatment.
