"Our mission is not only to treat cancer with one of the most promising methods of the 21st century - proton therapy, but above all provide patients with outstanding service at the global level." Václav and Pavel Laštovka
At the Proton Therapy Center, we use the Pencil Beam Scanning (PBS) technology, which allows for precise targeting and distribution of the proton beam dose. At present, it represents the absolute pinnacle of proton therapy technology. Pencil beam scanning irradiates the target area (tumor) with millimetre precision, thus minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissues and organs. PBS increases patients' chance of recovery and good quality of life after treatment. Treatment outcomes achieved by the Proton Therapy Center team have in the long term ranked us at the leading edge among proton centers.
At the Proton Therapy Center we focus on the treatment of patients with such types of cancer for which proton radiotherapy is a globally recognised and recommended treatment. We most frequently treat patients diagnosed with:
Modern Diagnostic Examinations
