NEW YORK, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
United States and Japan – Proton Therapy Market, Patients & Forecast
Proton therapy has become a subject of considerable interest in the radiation oncology community and it is expected that there will be a substantial growth in proton treatment facilities during the next decade. Proton therapy, one of the most intriguing developments in cancer treatment, carries a price tag as intimidating as its size. At a cost of US$ 125 Million, and sometimes much more, today's centers usually fill a city block. Building and equipping a facility carries financial and logistical challenges that dwarf nearly any other capital project. Even health care systems with deep pockets might not have sufficient land available, particularly in urban areas.
For the year 2013 actual Proton Therapy market of United States and Japan was in Million US$, whereas; potential Proton Therapy market for United States was in double digit Billion US$ and of Japan it was in single Billion digit US$. In Unites States Actual numbers of patients for Proton Therapy is in Thousands whereas; its potential numbers of patients is in Millions. IBA & Mitsubishi dominates the proton therapy market in United States and Japan respectively. However other players like Varian, Mevion, Hitachi etc. have also started to make their presence felt in the market.
Renub Research study titled "United States and Japan – Proton Therapy Market, Patients & Forecast" provides a comprehensive assessment of the fast-evolving, high-growth of Proton Therapy Market. In this report we have studied the market in two parts a) Actual Market and b) Potential Market. The report also talks about list of all operational and future Proton Therapy centers; Economics of proton therapy including reimbursement policies. This 75 page report with 22 Figures and 9 Tables studies the Proton Therapy of 6 Companies.
Note: *Actual Market is the current market which is already present
**Potential Market is the market which can be achieved; but it has yet not been achieved due to demand and supply gap. At present only a few proton therapy centers are available that can treat a limited number of patients each year, but the potential candidate demand for more proton therapy centers are very high.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...

Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.

There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
