News and Opinions About Our Industry

Pyrexar Medical will be an exhibiting sponsor of the PTCOG-NA (Particle Therapy Co-Operative Group - North America) in Miami, Florida, October 14-16. This is our first participation in this annual event. Our interest in proton therapy was peaked after reading a 2014 article published in the International Journal of Hyperthermia by Prof. Dr. Niloy Datta exploring proton therapy and hyperthermia.

Since then, Pyrexar placed a BSD-2000 Deep Regional Hyperthermia System at the University of Maryland Proton Center.  This is the first installation in the world to offer both a proton therapy system and hyperthermia system under the same roof.  This installation, along with further clinical study, will move us closer to understanding the relationship of protons combined with focused heating.
