Brain & Central Nervous System

The brain is the most complex and important organ within the human body. It is the source of our thoughts, feelings and senses. It is this complexity that makes the treatment of brain tumours the most difficult and dangerous because of the high risk of damaging sensitive structures.

What can proton therapy be used for:

  •  Low Grade Gliomas
    -Pilocytic Astrocytoma
    -Nonpilocytic Gliomas (astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, oligoastrocytoma)
  • Meningiomas
  • Pituitary Adenomas
  • Chordomas & Chondrosarcomas

With conventional radiation therapy it is impossible to avoid these vital structures. As a result of the extra radiation dose they receive, patients can experience long term- permanent health problems. This naturally reduces quality of life for patients.

Proton therapy reduces radiation exposure to surrounding tissue by 50% which helps to preserve:

  • Vision
  • Hearing
  • Intellectual ability
  • Endocrine functions
