Past News Releases


One major trend in the market is the rise in demand for proton therapy despite the high-cost structure leading to the implementation of more proton therapy centers, resulting in market growth.

Analysts forecast the Global Proton Therapy market to grow at a CAGR of 9.50 percent over the period 2013-2018. According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the technological advances in medical diagnostics and therapeutics. The advances in technology led to the implementation of low-energy cyclotron centers for the irradiation procedure, which is the major part of proton therapy.

Proton therapy is a type of particle therapy which is used to treat cancer patients by means of proton beams irradiation. The main advantage of proton therapy is that while destroying the target malignant cells, it causes minimal damage to the surrounding cells. Proton therapy uses the ionization technique to inhibit cell proliferation. Protons move slowly through the body and interact with electrons and discharge energy. The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center is the pioneer in this technology and also initiated the pencil beam proton therapy, which is also known as scanning beam and intensity modulated proton therapy.
