One in three people in Japan suffer from cancer. Radiotherapy, one of the effective treatment options for cancer, has remarkably advanced, thanks to state-of-the-art computer technology and functional upgrades in treatment systems.
Every year, increasingly more people suffer from cancer. With the increasing demand for radiotherapy, approximately 900 radiotherapy units have been installed nationwide. However, the number of professionals involved in treatment, including radiation oncologists, has not increased correspondingly. The most significant challenge is assuring safety and consistency during high-precision treatment.
Under these circumstances, greater expectations have been made in the radio-therapeutic device industry for systems that are capable of shortening treatment time, have quality assurance, and are simple to operate.
