Mevion Medical Systems, Inc. Key Developments

Mevion Medical Systems and Philips Radiation Oncology Systems Collaborate to Offer Advanced Treatment planning Solutions for Mevion’s New Pencil Beam Scanning Technology

Mevion Medical Systems and Philips Radiation Oncology Systems are collaborating to combine the treatment planning capability of Philips’ Pinnacle³ radiation therapy planning system with the MEVION S250 solution with HYPERSCAN, Mevion’s new pencil beam scanning technology that is capable of scanning a tumor in seconds. Pinnacle currently supports the MEVION S250, the world’s smallest proton therapy platform. The new collaboration will focus on enabling the Pinnacle³ system to also support HYPERSCAN. The first site to use Pinnacle with the MEVION S250 is the UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health. HYPERSCAN has not been cleared by the USFDA for clinical use.

Mevion Medical Systems, Inc. and RaySearch Laboratories AB Announces Strategic Partnership to Develop Advanced Treatment Planning Solutions for the MEVION S250 with Hyperscan

Mevion Medical Systems Inc. and RaySearch Laboratories AB are announcing a partnership to develop advanced treatment planning solutions for the MEVION S250 proton therapy platform. RaySearch's RayStation(R) treatment planning system supports the MEVION S250's current configuration so this new partnership will focus on validating the use of the RayStation treatment planning system for Mevion's new HYPERSCAN pencil beam scanning technology, and developing advanced planning solutions that take advantage of HYPERSCAN's rapid pencil beam delivery capabilities. Mevion and RaySearch are partnering to provide treatment planning systems for the MEVION S250 with HYPERSCAN technology. The partnership is being announced at the 56th annual meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), held September 14 - 16 in San Francisco. HYPERSCAN's patented technology, paired with the direct and efficient proton beam generation of the MEVION S250 platform, allows tumor volumes to be quickly scanned in a matter of seconds. This speed makes HYPERSCAN's treatment delivery much less sensitive to patient and tumor motion.

Mevion Medical Systems Introduces HYPERSCAN for the MEVION S250 Platform

Mevion Medical Systems introduced HYPERSCAN for the MEVION S250, the only modular, single room proton therapy system. Benefiting from direct and efficient proton beam generation, HYPERSCAN's patented technology allows radiation to be precisely delivered using a sharp beam of radiation, with the tumor being volumetrically scanned in a matter of seconds. Current pencil beam delivery systems are known to be sensitive to motion which can result in higher treatment uncertainties. HYPERSCAN's fast beam delivery is much less sensitive to patient and tumor motions, thus delivering a more robust treatment. HYPERSCAN is debuting at the 56th annual meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), held September 14 -- 16 in San Francisco. Mevion representatives will formally introduce HYPERSCAN at booth 728 in the exhibit hall. HYPERSCAN is built on the MEVION S250 proton therapy platform that has been operating clinically since December 2013. The HYPERSCAN system features rapid volumetric and layer rescanning, a streamlined image-based clinical workflow, sub-millimeter position tracking, and beam gating connectivity. Simultaneously, Mevion is announcing it has reached an agreement with a financial services provider to offer financing to customers interested in purchasing the MEVION S250. This will provide Mevion's customers with an alternative to traditional financing structures, should they desire it.
