Atlanta Magazine covered the Emory University Proton Therapy Center. This new technology offers the most advanced radiation treatment available in the state of Georgia. It is under the care and expertise of renowned specialists at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, Georgia’s only National Cancer Institute-designed comprehensive cancer center.
What is Proton Therapy?
Proton Therapy combines advances in radiation technology, engineering and medical physics to delivery a treatment precisely where needed-with less spillover to adjacent healthy tissue. Less radiation exposure is one benefit not to mention the potential for fewer side effects and complications, particularly reducing the risk of cancers developing near sensitive organs as well as for children whose tissues are still developing.
