Reliability of Medical Facilities

  • Kathleen Genge (TRIUMF)


The largest number of particle accelerators are devoted to medical applications (diagnostic or therapy), but having a smaller size and energy compared to high energy physics research. These devices are also industrial products, as compared to research machines. During the two last decades an increase pf “large scale” medical facilities, comparable to those for research, have appeared. These Proton and Carbon facilities are now slowly moving to the biomedical and industrial world.

The session of ARW2022 will consider:
• return on experience or methods used in the existing centres, which consider reliability and a financial performance indicator
• consideration of the medical accelerator and associated systems design; challenges and approaches of the industrial companies to achieve reliability of their products and processes.
