The current beam delivery system serving multiple treatment rooms has been a fixed accelerator (cyclotron/synchrotron) extracting a beam into a fixed beam line going to 3-4 adjacent treatment rooms.
Most treatment rooms have rotating 360-degree gantries for flexible beam delivery. These gantries are large, expensive and not only do the treatment rooms need radiation shielding but so also does the beam line itself.
This current delivery system has a substantial upfront capital strain and high ongoing operational cost.
Meeting the Proton Therapy Challenge using MBS services
The first Managed Beam Service (MBS) uses a new mechatronics concept to re-engineer the proton therapy delivery system, with an 80% reduction in physical size for our standard 8 room modular configuration.
All equipment, including shielding, is factory-assembled and delivered to hospital site pre-certified, with a lead time from order to delivery of one year.
Muir PT aims to make the Managed Beam Service (MBS) available to Healthcare Providers on a pay-per-treatment basis at the equivalent per treatment cost of Photon Therapy.
This Managed Beam Service (MBS) delivers assured outcomes in a manner that avoids upfront capital strain for the Healthcare Provider and covers the facility’s operation & maintenance cost.
With a reputation for innovation, flexibility and know-how, MUIR PT delivers expertise in more than one area:
- Medical Technology

- Transformation and Advisory Services
- Managed Departmental Services
