Proton Beam Therapy

A Proton Beam Machine will be installed in Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in near future. In a few parts of the country, proton beam therapy is being used to treat prostate cancer.

Proton therapy is administered much the same way as external beam therapy, but it uses protons rather than x-rays to irradiate cancer cells.
