BNCT is a cellular-level radiation therapy that uses boron carrier compounds in a neutron-induced nuclear reaction to selectively target tumor cells while protecting the surrounding normal tissue.

    IPT’s medical center is equipped with a world-leading compact linear accelerator that can be installed in the hospital, and supplies stable and reliable intense proton beams to be used as a neutron source instead of the reactor. Normally, it is impossible to install the reactor in a hospital but the IPT accelerator system can be installed in a hospital. Designed by IPT, the BNCT medical center offers the highest quality of precision radiotherapy for cancer patients.
