Pediatric

Pediatric cancer survival rates have increased significantly (from 10% to 90%) over the last decade. Unfortunately, many of these surviving patients experience significant long-term side effects, including secondary cancers in healthy tissues that received unnecessary radiation during their initial treatment. Proton therapy can limit radiation doses to these healthy tissues while delivering curative doses to the tumor, which reduces the risk of experiencing long-term side effects.
