30 Proton Centers in U.S.

Posted by Deb Hickey on February 18th, 2019 — Posted in General

The National Association for Proton Therapy recently announced there are now 30 proton centers in the U.S. It took 25 years for the first 15 proton centers to be built and started-up in the U.S. But it took just four years for the next 15 to come on line. Last month, the University of Oklahoma treated its first patient at the Stephenson Cancer Center in Oklahoma City. The single-room treatment facility is planning to treat brain tumors, head-and-neck tumors, abdominal tumors (e.g. pancreatic cancer), rare neural tumors, localized prostate cancer, and tumors in pediatric patients.
