The Mobetron

mobetron with backsplash

 

The Mobetron allows doctors to administer IOERT quickly and safely in the operating room by eliminating the need for protective radiation shields.  The Mobetron uses a small linear accelerator to deliver electron-beams, rather than x-ray beams used in conventional radiation therapy.  Electron-beams penetrate at a shallower depth than x-ray beams so radiation can be given in any operating room.

There is no need for a lead-shielded bunker, as there is with conventional x-ray beam radiation.

Doctors have been using electron-beam linear accelerators in cancer treatment for forty years and the technology has proven effective.
