Proton Therapy

Proton Therapy - a more targeted treatment

Proton Therapy is considered the most advanced currently available therapy and a valuable treatment modality for thousands of adults and children who are diagnosed with cancer. Proton Therapy aims to destroy cancer cells by delivering proton beams to a target tumor. Protons release their energy within the tumor target area while limiting the radiation to the surrounding healthy tissues.

Proton Therapy Achievements

More than 60 proton therapy centers worldwide & more than 100 000 patients treated by IBA proton therapy customers.
