Mevion consciously designed and developed the MEVION S250 with an intent to minimize the risk of harm to the patient, users, and bystanders associated with use and operation of the MEVION S250.

All forms of radiation therapy may cause side effects, based upon treatment location and prescribed treatment dose.

Misuse of the product or user error could result in negligible or serious injury, or, in extreme cases, death. Physicians must be adequately qualified, as the ultimate safety and efficacy of the treatment relies upon physician treatment selection, planning, and delivery.

The MEVION S250 must be used in accordance with all applicable user, patient, and environmental safety guidelines, laws, and other requirements.
