Siemens Medical Systems' Oncology Care Systems Group (US) has introduced a modular design for its Mevatron linear accelerator. This is in line with a shift away from hardware-based medical electronics to modular systems as manufacturers approach the need for flexible equipment brought about by healthcare cost-containment. The new Mevatron system can be configured in a range of energy levels for different applications and can be upgraded on site, according to Siemens.
