Pencil beam scanning: The proton therapy innovation of the future

Similar to regular proton therapy, pencil beam scanning places radiation more precisely within a tumour. Pencil beam scanning couples the unique properties of protons with a magnetically-guided scanning system that delicately and precisely moves a beam of pencil point sharpness back and forth across each layer of a tumour’s thickness, painting the tumour with radiation in three dimensions.
