About Proton Therapy

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

Description
Protons are positivelycharged subatomic particles contained in the nucleus of hydrogen atoms, towhich the only electron they have is extracted. The proton beams are held inpowerful accelerators and their physical characteristics allow them to optimallyblame the dose in the tumor and around it respecting healthy zincundanttissues.

Duration of treatment:
Each session lasts about 20 minutes daily for an adult and about 40 minutes for a pediatric one. This includes the positioning time and verification of the quality of the geometry. The irradiation time is very short, and it can be, depending on the dose administered and the number of irradiation fields from one to three minutes.

Recovery:
The many benefits of proton therapy include the possibility of administering high doses of radiation to targets that have vital organs and other critical structures nearby, thereby increasing local control of any type of tumor, reducing the radiation delivered to adjacent tissues and organs as well as the total radiation dose delivered, which significantly reduces the risk that the patient will develop radiation-induced tumors and increases their chances of enjoying improved quality of life.
