2 Project MedAustron : PIMMS (proton and ion medical machine study) TERA, MedAustron, Oncology2000 led by CERN : MedAustron feasibility study in Austria 2007 Decision to finance project by Austrian Government Government of Lower Austria (warranty for 120 Mio.) owning EBG MedAustron Federal Government of Austria ( 41 Mio.) City of Wr. Neustadt (building site) April 2007: Foundation of EBG MedAustron GmbH EBG MedAustron constructs and operates the centre Design optimized for flexibility and requirements of users Single component tendering (no turn-key solution) PP a-AFA A.

8 NCR irradiation room Designed for research medical issues without patients experimental physics Large enough for two irradiation places PP a-AFA A. Fabich MedAustron – Austrian Hadron Therapy Centre 8 Experimental Physics applications MedAustron is not a competitor with European high intensity facilities. Development and test of particle counters Preparation for test beams at high-intensity facilities with limited time slots Proton scattering facility Proton Computerized Tomography at 800 MeV Education and Training Other applications radiation damage, dosimetry, ion microprobe White book in print: Physics opportunities at the MedAustron

9 Project Schedule CDR and CE layout frozen: spring 2008 EIA: in the course of 2009 Groundbreaking: summer 2010 Installation start: summer 2011 Commissioning start: winter 2012/2013 First patient: winter 2013/2014 PP a-AFA A. Fabich MedAustron – Austrian Hadron Therapy Centre 9

10 Summary The MedAustron project is funded by the Austrian government. MedAustron will be a state of the art accelerator centre for ion therapy in Austria. MedAustron will be a multi-usage facility for versatile, international research in Austria. PP a-AFA A. Fabich MedAustron – Austrian Hadron Therapy Centre 10

11 Irradiation Rooms HEBT = High Energy Transfer Line Optimized to MedAustron needs All rooms located on one side for common usage of general facility Irradiation rooms Room 1: horizontal beam line, protons/ions Used by non-clinical research Room 2: Horizontal and vertical beam line, protons/ions Used for medical treatment and Medical Radiation Physics Room 3: Horizontal line, protons/ions Used for medical treatment Room 4: Proton gantry Used for medical treatment Room 5 (extension possible): Optional ion gantry Used for medical treatment Active beam scanning on all beam lines.
