The goal of this Clinic project is to upgrade the alignment system on Optivus Technology’s Proton Beam Therapy System (PBTS) Eye-Beam Line by replacing the obsolete components with digital imaging devices and an accompanying software package. This involves both mechanical and electrical engineering to implement the hardware requirements, and software development to create the supporting software.
