Proton Therapy

Proton Therapy is a CLINICAL INTERVENTION.

Proton Therapy (also known as Proton Beam Radiation Therapy) is a type of radiation therapy that uses streams of protons (tiny particles with a positive charge) to kill tumour CELLS but not damage nearby TISSUES. It is used to treat cancers in the head and neck and in other organs such as the brain, eye, lung, spine and prostate.
