Proton beam therapy is an advanced form of external radiotherapy that uses high-energy proton beams instead of photon x-ray beams or electrons. Carefully measured doses of protons are delivered to the precise area needing treatment, using the latest IBA ProteusONE technology. This ensures that the delivery of proton beam therapy is highly accurate and prevents the risk of radiation reaching surrounding healthy tissue.
Radiotherapy is used to kill and destroy cancer cells. It utilises radiation in the form of high-energy x-rays, known as photons, to kill and damage the cancerous cells and prevent their growth and reproduction. It can be used as a non-surgical option to treat cancer, and it can also be used to shrink a tumour or in combination with other treatments.
The Rutherford Cancer Centres and Elekta are bringing the next generation of personalised adaptive radiotherapy technology to oncology centres across the UK, with the new MR-linac Elekta Unity now available at the Rutherford Cancer Centre North West in Liverpool.
We aim to provide those coming to the clinic, with quick access to appointments with our specialist Urology experts, fast-tracked diagnostic investigations, with the aim of providing same-day diagnostic results for prostate screening, and direct access to follow up consultations and investigations that may be required.
When you arrive, our friendly, experienced lead Urology nurse will welcome you, to begin your initial prostate screening assessment checks. This consists of a consultation with our lead Urology nurse, in a private, comfortable room, and the initial tests to investigate any prostate concerns you may have, or for your general prostate health check. Any issues or conversations had during your consultation are private and confidential.
