This autumn we have passed the important landmark of 100,000 patients treated with IBA proton therapy systems around the world. This milestone is an important step towards our common quest of making proton therapy accessible to all patients who could benefit from it. Together, we are building an exciting future, through technological innovation and leadership, on the further development of patient treatments.
‘100,000 patients treated’ would not have been possible without working closely with you over these years. We want to give you tribute for your achievements and commitment throughout this journey. The expertise of our community is unique. So let’s celebrate this milestone together!
First patient receiving IBA proton therapy treatment, Boston 2001
In 2001 the first patient was treated with a PT system installed by IBA at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston (now known as the Francis H. Burr Proton Therapy Center). Since then, through relentless effort and commitment, IBA has installed over half of the clinically driven PT centers worldwide and has become the undisputed leader in the field. Together with our clinical partners, we will keep striving to achieve our mission to protect, enhance and save lives.
