medAustron and Ion Beam Therapy

MedAustron, one of the most modern centres for Ion Beam Therapy and Research in Europe, is currently being built in Wiener Neustadt.  It will be completed in 2015.


The centre offers an innovative form of radiation therapy (ion beam therapy) using protons and carbon ions, which enables the reduction of radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue and the sparing of the tissue behind the tumor almost entirely.

The radART-Institute and MedAustron cooperate in the development of highly efficient ion therapy.
