Abstract:
I recently had an opportunity to visit the Italian Proton/Carbon Ion therapy facility, CNAO, in Pavia, Italy.
Earlier this year, this facility was used as a template for a white paper written to support a proposal to build an ion therapy facility in the US. Should such a facility be built, Fermilab may have an opportunity to participate in its design and construction.

I will present first-hand observations of the facility and its design and some lessons learned. I will also offer some
suggestions that Fermilab may take to promote ion therapy efforts in the US.
