PTC is leading the way in pencil beam scanning
|Iva Tatounova-Curtis Poling-Lucie Kleckova at PTCC|
Continuing my journey with proton therapy I visited this newest Proton Therapy Center in Prague Czech Republic. PTCC is one of the leaders using the most sophisticated Pencil Beam Scanning (PBS) delivery technique for treating a variety of cancers. Physics group has had very extensive experiences and technical expertise in commissioning and implementing the excellent quality assurance for PBS in three of their treatment rooms. Most centers experiences have been limited to the Uniform Scanning (US) and Double Scattering (DS) modalities so far. Other centers across the globe are observing the clinical cases and have learned a very valuable information from the very experienced clinical and physics staff of PTCC. This equates to highly accurate delivery and higher dosages of treatment without side effects of traditional forms of radiation.
Continuing journey as a global advocate for proton therapy I was honored to tour this amazing advanced center for cancer proton center. The center's founders Pavel & Vaclav Lastovka have implemented the most advanced proton center in the world. Emphasis on pediatrics and many cancers that proton patients will benefit. Considering costs for proton therapy this center is lowest costs in the world and recently introduced hyperfracinated treatments of early stage proton with only 5 dosages (5 days). Amazing center!!
