Proton therapy to treat brain and central nervous system cancers
In the treatment of brain and CNS cancers, a combination of surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy is often required. When radiation is indicated, it is crucial to precisely target the dose to the tumor due to the proximity to vitally important healthy brain tissue, the eyes and the optic nerves. Proton therapy is thus an option of choice compared to conventional X-ray therapy, because it delivers a smaller dose to healthy tissue, resulting in less adverse effects such as neurological dysfunction and secondary tumors.
