Sorry, I should have said that the cost is going to come down by a factor of five to ten.

John    Yes.  There is new technology.  The basic cost of a facility has, very recently,   come down by about a factor of four.  E.g., Swedish Med Center, in Seattle, is   installing a machine, in partnership with other institutions, for about US$22M.    Check out the Clinatron 250, by Still River Systems.
