As important as it is for you to go to the doctor for check-ups to maintain your health, your linear accelerator machine needs TLC, too, but even more of it! Linear accelerators produce high energy x-rays and are most commonly used to destroy cancer cells during radiation therapy. Performing detailed checks of these incredibly powerful machines is essential to ensuring quality control and meeting the highest standards of patient care.
When it comes to linear accelerators, every single mechanical part makes a significant impact on the overall performance of the machine—from the thyratron and MLC motor down to the hoses. (Be sure to read the recent blog post from our sister company, RadParts, about the most common linear accelerator spare parts to keep on hand and why they are so important!)
