What Is Proton Therapy?
Proton therapy, otherwise known as proton beam therapy, is a type of radiation therapy used to treat cancer. This type of therapy is similar to the x-ray therapy that is traditionally used for cancer treatment, in that a machine is used to transfer radiation into the body. Unlike typical radiation therapy, which uses x-rays in the treatment process, however, proton therapy incorporates the use of protons to target cancerous cells.
Using a synchrotron or cyclotron machine, protons are sped up, creating energy that can be harnessed in the form of radiation beams that target tumors. When compared to x-ray treatment, there is less radiation that affects other, non-cancerous cells or continuously emits radiation as it is leaving the body. As a more targeted approach to cancer treatment, proton therapy produces less radiation-related side effects.
