What is proton beam therapy?

Proton beam therapy is an advanced form of external radiotherapy that uses high-energy protons instead of photon x-rays or electrons. This treatment can better target harder to reach tumours in sensitive locations or near to vital organs in the body. Proton beam therapy ensures the best possible outcomes, with minimal side effects and is beneficial for cancers such as those diagnosed in the prostate, spine,  liver and breast.

An overview of how proton beam therapy works

Proton beam therapy is highly accurate in targeting a treatment area. It can be used to treat hard-to-reach tumours, while lowering radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue and vital organs.
