MEDICYC CAL 65 MeV multiparticle cyclotron

Electrical heart of an AIMA cyclotron

AIMA Developpement is designing, building and testing new cost effective cyclotrons and dedicated beam lines for various medical and industrial applications since 2005.


for Industrial and Medical Applications


AIMA expertise stems from the cyclotron laboratory of the Centre Antoine Lacassagne (CAL), that designed and built MEDICYC, the first hospital-based cyclotron facility in France for protontherapy. For more than 25 years, MEDICYC has successfully treated more than 7,500 patients. 


In 2009-2012, AIMA Developpement developped a new superconducting synchrocyclotron (S2C2™) for high energy (230 MeV) protontherapy of deep seated tumors. This conceptual design was adopted by the IBA Company, the world leading manufacturer of medical accelerators for protontherapy.

The prototype of the S2C2™ is installed in the cyclotron Laboratory of the Centre Antoine Lacassagne. Both MEDICYC and the S2C2™ will provide a world leading facility for the development of protontherapy. The dedicated R&D beam line has also been designed by AIMA.



Innovative cyclotron design is the core expertise of AIMA: - Dedicated software tools - Construction of specific subsystems - Test benches for ion sources and injection systems

Particle Therapy

Particle Therapy

AIMA has a long experience designing particle therapy equipments. In the recent years AIMA proposed the S2C2™, the brand new IBA superconducting synchrocyclotron for protontherapy.

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine

Our experts have fully developed and commissioned a PET cyclotron that has been industrialized & commercialized for FdG radioisotope production. AIMA is now involved with several designs of PET & SPECT production machines.
