  The approval of the Dmitrovgrad project - the first Russian hospital center of the proton therapy was announced in 2010. The JINR-IBA collaboration have developed and constructed the proton cyclotron C235-V3 for this center. We plan to assemble this cyclotron in JINR in 2011 and perform tests with the extracted proton beam in 2012. This cyclotron is an essentially modified version of IBA C235 cyclotron. Modification of the extraction system is aim of new C235-V3 cyclotron. The new extraction system was constructed and tested. The experimentally measured extraction efficiency was improved from 60% for the old system to 77% for the new one. The new field mapping system was developed for the C235-V3 cyclotron. It system consists of the axial field mapping system and an additional system applied for radial field Br measurements. One of the goals of the cyclotron improvement is the modification of the sector spiral angle for reducing of coherent beam losses at acceleration. The coherent beam displacement from the median plane is defined by the vertical betatron tune Qz. An increase of the vertical betatron tune permits to reduce the coherent losses at proton acceleration.
