Proton therapy is a form of radiation treatment that delivers a precise dose of radiation to tumors while sparing surrounding healthy tissue. The result is a better option for treating some types of cancer while causing fewer harmful side effects.
New technology available at Orlando Health allows for more precise treatment of cancer tumors through real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during radiation therapy. This decreases radiation to healthy tissue and organs.
Advances in superconducting technology and nuclear engineering have made proton therapy a practical treatment for cancer patients today. Dr. Naren Ramakrishna, director of Neurologic and Pediatric Radiation Oncology, explains how proton therapy works and why it’s considered a superior alternative to conventional radiation.
