    The most advanced technique

    Thanks to the physical properties of protons, proton therapy is currently the safest and most advanced radiotherapy technique for treating certain kinds of cancer. Applied in specific doses, protons can act with precision inside tissue, achieving a better anti-tumour activity and causing less damage to healthy tissue. Therefore, this therapy is suitable for paediatric patients and in certain types of tumours:
    • Paediatric tumours
    • Eye and brain tumours
    • Sarcoma of the head and neck

    This new centre brings together all the necessary technology for tumour treatment in one multifunctional room. The proton therapy system, named Proteus One®, includes a tumour scanning system to enable doctors to use the most suitable dosage in each treatment area. It has the most advanced imaging equipment and can rotate 220 degrees over the patient to apply the proton beam from any angle.

    What benefits does it have for the patient?

    Minimum or no radiation around the tumour, a lower total dosage of radiation per treatment, very significant reduction of risk of secondary tumours and an improvement to the patient’s quality of life are just some of the many benefits that proton therapy offers.
