cy·clo·tron

(sī'klō-tron),
An accelerator that produces high-speed ions (for example, protons and deuterons) under the influence of an alternating magnetic field, for bombardment and disruption of atomic nuclei. Used to produce clinically useful positron-emitting radionuclides.
[cyclo- + G. -tron, instrumental suffix]

cyclotron

Radiation therapy A device used to accelerate charged particles–eg, protons to higher energy levels, in which a magnetic field causes the particles to orbit, which are accelerated by an oscillating electric field. See Radiotherapy.
