proton therapy for cancer
Proton Therapy
Introduction

Proton therapy is a radiation therapy that uses tiny particles called protons. Proton therapy does not damage as much healthy tissue as photon therapy because of the way it delivers the energy.

Procedures

Proton therapy is delivered by a device called a cyclotron, which sends a high-energy beam of protons towards the tumour. A CT scan with or without an MRI scan is done for three dimensional mapping of the tumour.
