Science has been waiting.



The advantages of proton therapy:

  • Minimal or no side effects

  • Greater radiobiological efficacy

  • Significant reduction in radiation

  • Targeted dose delivery to the tumor mass

Proton therapy is considered the most advanced radiotherapy treatment available today.


ERHA: proton therapy
made in Italy

Proton therapy is an innovative technology that uses beams of protons produced by a particle accelerator to treat tumors. ERHA stands out as a worldwide unique system and this is for the following reasons:

  • Real time control of the LINAC (linear accelerator) with energy and intensity modulation

  • Robotic system for patient positioning

  • Integrated treatment planning system software

5 reasons to choose ERHA, the Enhanced Radiotherapy with Hadrons


Lower price compared to existing systems.


Respect for the environment: it has almost negligible both instant and induced radiations, it avoids the need for large amounts of concrete shielding and it reduces problems of decommissioning and disposal of radioactive waste at the end of its life (20-30 years).


Small footprint: our structure extends mostly in length and requires a surface area of less than 100sqm. Therefore, it has very little impact compared to existing PT structures.


Easy to set up in a shielded corridor, a warehouse or a parking lot, as it requires only a small flat surface.


Ease of management by operators: the number of devices is reduced and control is achieved by a single software interface.
