A guide to Proton Beam Therapy
About this guide
Proton beam therapy (PBT) is a new approach to delivering radiotherapy which uses a beam of protons rather than X-rays to deliver a dose of radiotherapy for patients who have cancer. This new approach to cancer treatment is proving to more effective in some forms of cancer and gives rise to less side effects. The capital investment required to provide PBT is very high, hence many patients are having to travel to treatment centres in another country for treatment. Some are funded by their domestic health system; some are funding themselves or are obtaining charitable funding for this high cost treatment.
This guide provides an overview of proton beam therapy and guides the patient in exploring the options for proton beam therapy abroad. It has been developed through the experience that we have gained through operating the Treatment Abroad web site and our knowledge of the medical tourism industry in general.
