Proton Therapy is the most advanced radiation therapy today, destroying cancer cells, but does not attack surrounding healthy tissue nearly as much as traditional radiation therapy does. The key advantage of proton therapy is the ability to more precisely localize the radiation dosage when compared with other types of external beam radiotherapy.
Proponents of Proton Therapy treatment say that more than 800,000 Americans representing nearly two-thirds of new cancer cases undergo radiation therapy each year. If only 200,000 of them could benefit from protons, they would fill more than 100 centers. Currently there are 13 Proton Therapy centers in the US. According to the National Association of Proton Therapy, there are 11 centers in operation and 13 in development (summer 2013).
