P-Cure Ltd. is developing and marketing innovative patient-focused solutions for the Proton Therapy market that significantly reduce costs associated with creating and operating proton treatment centers. The P-Cure solution offers increased flexibility for fixed-beam settings, with the ability to treat a significantly larger number of indications, reducing the need for large and expensive gantry systems, with a corresponding increase in patient throughput. As a result, customers benefit from significant reductions in construction, equipment, and facility costs while increasing the effectiveness.
