Cancer TreatmentProtons are “shot” at malignant tumours releasing energy at pre-determined distances, effectively destroying cancer cells without surgery. This brilliant technology was developed by a European University and commercialised by a specially created publicly quoted company.
Magnets are used to control the velocity and direction of the protons. ATS developed the PLC control and the SCADA system over several generations of machines. The SCADA system is also used for “operator/medical” control. As well as assisting the customer with software development ATS has been involved in system installation and commissioning in hospitals world wide.
