What Is Proton Therapy?

Proton Therapy cyclotron

Proton therapy is an advanced form of radiation therapy that uses protons rather than traditional x-rays. It targets tumors and cancer cells more precisely. This means less damage to surrounding tissue which results in a lower risk of side effects and a better quality of life during and after cancer treatment.
