Proton Beam Radiotherapy for Craniospinal Radiation – pro

Proton beam therapy is similar to 3-Dimensional and cofnromal readiatherapy but it uses  proton beams that are directed to the tumor. Protons are positive parts of atoms. Unlike x-rays, which are what conventional radiation emplys, protons release energy both before and after they hit their target. If interst to physicians,  protons cause little damage to tissues they pass through and release their energy after traveling a certain distance. The

Proton Beam Radiotherapy and prostate cancer – pro

Charged-particle beams consisting of protons or helium ions are a type of particulate radiation therapy that contrast with conventional electromagnetic (i.e., photon) radiation therapy due to the unique properties of minimal scatter as the particulate beams pass through the tissue, and deposition of the ionizing energy at a precise depth (i.e., the Bragg Peak). Thus radiation exposure to surrounding normal tissues is minimized. The theoretical advantages
