Technological update:

This feature is invaluable for accurate tumour targeting and side-effect minimisation, particularly in the case of moving targets. As part of its testing and regulatory plan, the Company has developed a Time-of-Flight ("TOF") measurement system which measures the speed of the beam; this allows the system to measure the energy of each proton pulse, which is a very important clinical parameter.” “With much of the technological development now de-risked, the Company is on target to have a system capable of treating superficial tumours by the end of Q3 2018.”
