Proton therapy is a type of particle therapy which is used to treat cancer patients by means of proton beams irradiation. The main advantage of proton therapy is that while destroying the target malignant cells, it causes minimal damage to the surrounding cells. Proton therapy uses the ionization technique to inhibit cell proliferation.
Protons move slowly through the body and interact with electrons and discharge energy. The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center is the pioneer in this technology and also initiated the pencil beam proton therapy, which is also known as scanning beam and intensity modulated proton therapy.
The analysts forecast the Global Proton Therapy market to grow at a CAGR of 9.50 percent over the period 2013-2018.
This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Proton Therapy market for the period 2014-2018. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of various products used for the treatment of cancer using the proton beam therapy.
