What is proton therapy?
Proton therapy, also called proton beam therapy, is the most advanced radiation therapy available in Turkey and Istanbul. It is capable of destroying cancer cells, but it does not attack surrounding healthy tissue like traditional radiation therapy.
With proton therapy, a high beam of proton energy, instead of high energy X-rays, is used to provide a dose of radiation therapy to fight cancer.
