Varian Proton Cyclotron
1:5 scale 34" x 34" x 45" (25" dia.)

The actual machine is so large that it requires a 3-story space to house it.  The technology it employs is fascinating, and ultimately vital, targeting cancerous cells in a highly focused manner with minimal detriment to the patient.  Protons ‘spin’ (ergo the cyclotron) by means of large magnets—see ‘copper’ parts within the images—and travel through a long tube to the treatment room.  The size and the cost of this product made it very difficult to show at hospitals, so we scaled it down.  We added a cutaway to help tell the complete story as it travels domestically and abroad.
