Proton for paediatrics THE NEW STANDARD OF CARE

Proton therapy is an excellent, proven treatment option for children world-wide. Protons are an exciting aspect of peadiatric radiation therapy that promises significant dosimetric improvements in many cases.

Children with tumours in the brain, head, neck, spinal cord, heart, lungs and other areas that are sensitive to radiation can benefit from treatment with proton therapy because the oncologist can target treatment directly to the tumour area. Most tumours in children are treated with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. While traditional radiation therapy with X-ray beams (Linear Accelerators) can be effective, it produces long-term side effects in most of the children, such as a decrease in bone and soft tissue growth in the treated area, hormonal deficiencies, intellectual impairment, including neurocognitive deficits, and secondary cancers later in life. With the use of proton therapy all these side effects can be significantly reduced ensuring better quality of life.

Proton therapy has become global best practice in treating children affected by cancer and it is slowly emerging as the standard of care.
