Hyogo Ion Beam Medical Center

Hyogo Ion Beam Medical Center (HIBMC) was established on April 1, 2001 with the goal of eradicating cancer, which is an ardent wish of humanity. Our weapon in fighting this tough enemy is charged particle radiotherapy featuring two types of charged particles (proton and carbon-ion). HIBMC offers both of these two types of therapy, and there are only four of such institutions in the world (as of the end of March 2016). We are one of the most expericend institute; the number of cases to which we applied charged particle radiotherapy at HIBMC exceeds 8,000. We have actively published our achievements through presentations and lectures in (academic) conferences, and peer-reviewed academic journals. Patients cannot stay in the hospital, they have to stay in a hotel or somewhere else.
