Texas Center for Proton Therapy is ready to help you fight cancer with one of the nation’s most advanced cancer-fighting technologies.
A community room features the HOPE Wall inscribed with words of encouragement and will host weekly seminars, luncheons, and other activities.
Proton particles will accelerate through a 143-foot beamline – nearly half the length of a football field – as they travel from the cyclotron to the patient’s tumor with pinpoint accuracy.
The 63,000-square-foot building is constructed with 14,500 cubic yards of concrete – enough concrete to build an eight-story parking garage or fill four and a half Olympic-sized swimming pools.
The center’s advanced technology includes pencil-beam scanning for intensity modulated proton therapy and cone beam CT imaging – designed to treat tumors with pinpoint precision.
