High-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner appear to be worlds aside, however the underlying actual rules are an identical, and it is sensible to regard them jointly. Chemists and clinicians who use magnetic resonance have a lot to profit approximately each one other's specialties in the event that they are to make the simplest use of magnetic resonance know-how.

For proton beams to be used for radiation therapy purposes, there is a need to accelerate protons up to 230 MeV. This will allow for the proton beam to reach a depth of 32 g/cm2. To achieve this energy, a relatively long linear accelerator with many accelerating RF cavities is needed. This will take a large footprint and uses significant electric wall plug power. In addition, the linear accelerator technology is considered as rather expensive compared to other solutions. To reduce the size of the accelerator, one could imagine “winding” it into itself, using magnetic fields to bend the particle trajectories.
