Schoenherr has advised Austrian cancer treatment and research center MedAustron on the environmental impact assessment for the commissioning of a fourth treatment room.

MedAustron is a cancer treatment and research center in Austria. In addition to clinical applications, MedAustron also conducts research to improve the therapy method and generate more evidence.

According to Schoenherr, the EIA acceptance decision includes “granting the license to treat patients in this room equipped with a rotatable proton gantry, under hospital and radiation protection law.”

According to the firm, “this fourth treatment room is an important milestone for the center. Radiation therapy was previously provided in two rooms, while a third treatment room is used for research operations. The fourth room now makes it possible to treat more patients and expands the range of tumor diseases that can be treated because the rotating proton gantry can maneuver the beam around the patients.”

Schoenherr’s team included Partner Christian Schmelz and Attorney Christoph Jirak.
