MedAustron completed its first year as an operating cancer treatment facility in 2017, after having started patient treatments in December 2016.
2018 marked the second operational year for MedAustron. The centre, in Wiener Neustadt (Austria), continued to increase the number of patients treated and expanded the range of indications, since a vertical beamline was put into clinical operation in mid-2018. With commissioning efforts currently being focused on carbon ions, their clinical operation will be the major milestone of 2019.
The expertise of the CERN specialists continues to be an important source of knowledge for the work of the MedAustron experts. The cooperation between CERN and MedAustron also takes place via the MEDICIS-PROMED Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network.
