Ion Beam Therapy in China

Kolloquium der Abteilung 6

This presentation will highlight the increasing demand for ion beam therapy in China due to rising cancer rates, with over 4.8 million new diagnoses annually. This has prompted the construction and clinical deployment of numerous proton and heavy ion beam therapy facilities across the country. Specific focus will be given to the progress made by the first Chinese domestic proton therapy center at Shanghai Ruijin Hospital, as well as their research and development plans for the future. Additionally, dosimetry equipment plays a crucial role in the commissioning and quality assurance of ion beam therapy, and the presentation will address the progress in this field.
