Radiation therapy is one of the three major cancer treatment methods, and it is becoming popular as a cancer treatment method that is gentle on the body. Proton beam therapy is a type of radiation therapy. By taking advantage of its excellent physical dosage characteristics, it can supply a sufficient dosage of radiation to the targeted cancer tissue while reducing the dosage of radiation applied to normal tissue. Proton beam therapy is attracting significant attention in Japan and overseas, because it can be applied to various cases, for example in the treatment of diseases that are difficult to treat with other treatment methods, or where it is expected to be more effective than other treatment methods, or where it is more effective in improving quality of life (QOL) than other treatment methods.
