Cyclotron Arrives at UMC Groningen Proton Center

Groningen, Netherlands
A huge milestone in the UMCG proton therapy center project was accomplished this morning when the bottom half of the cyclotron was lowered into the building. Not only is it important because it is the first sign of treatment equipment, it also begins a different phase in the construction, as a handover is established from the builders to the IBA engineers that will begin installation of the proton treatment equipment.
