MedAustron completed its first year as an operating cancer treatment facility after having started patient treatments in December 2016. The centre is currently operating with protons and two horizontal fixed beam lines to deliver the particle beam into the treatment rooms. At the same time, much effort is being put into commissioning further beam lines and carbon ions. The continuing cooperation between CERN and MedAustron allows the experts in Austria to fall back on the unique expertise from CERN for their tasks.
