About Proton Radiation Therapy

Proton radiation therapy is the most accurate form of radiation treatment available today.

Ultimately, this results in a better quality of life for the patient both during and after treatment.

About Optivus Proton Therapy, Inc.

In 1988 Loma Linda University Medical Center in Southern California undertook the challenge of building the world's first hospital-based Proton Beam Cancer Treatment Center under the planned Children's Hospital Wing. The facility would consist of three gantry rooms and two fixed-beam rooms.

In October of 1990, the first treatment room was fully operational and shortly thereafter, the original engineering team, led by Jon W. Slater , was entrusted with the technical enhancement and maintenance of the entire treatment center.

Optivus' product, the Conforma 3000®, is FDA cleared and in its 7th design generation. It is a synchrotron accelerator based system that is modular and scalable to ensure upgrades and enhancements can be achieved without interrupting patient treatment. With over $150M in upgrades since 1990, (after the first patient was treated on the system,) the Optivus syste
