Benefits of Proton Therapy

  • High therapeutic ratio (maximum tumour control and minimum side effects)
  • Ability to irradiate tumours situated at close proximity to vulnerable organs e.g. small
    bowels and optic chiasm.
  • Reduces the possibility of secondary cancers caused by conventional radiation therapy,
    especially in children and young adults
  • An alternative for elderly and patients who are unfit for surgeries due to their medical
    comorbidities.
  • Treated on an outpatient basis.
