Provision Center for Proton Therapy Company Profile

19:52 EST 13th November 2018 | BioPortfolio

Opening in early 2014, the Provision Center for Proton Therapy will be the first of its kind in Tennessee and only the second in the Southeast. Proton therapy, the most advanced form of radiotherapy in the world, uses a single beam of high-energy protons to treat various forms of cancer. Different from conventional radiation therapy — in which beam energy dissipates as it passes through the body — proton beams can be fine-tuned with millimeters of accuracy to deliver maximum energy within the controlled range of the cancerous tumor.
