MD Anderson Cancer Center
Proton Pencil Beam Therapy – CNL
Proton Therapy Center at MD Anderson is the largest and most sophisticated facility of its kind in the world. Proton therapy derives its advantage over traditional forms of radiation treatment from its ability to deliver radiation doses to a targeted tumor with remarkable precision – within one millimeter – that avoids the surrounding tissue, generates fewer side effects and improves tumor control. The twin goals of controlling disease and minimizing side effects are the aims of radiation treatment, and protons enhance the opportunity for both.
