ABOUT THE UMD PROTON CENTER
Maryland Proton Treatment Center is the first center in the Baltimore-Washington region to fight cancer with proton therapy – a highly advanced and precise form of radiation. The MPTC is also one of only a handful of centers in the country to have a fully integrated system of volumetrically image-guided proton therapy (IGPT) and intensity-modulated proton therapy (IMPT). MPTC offers the most advanced form of proton therapy in the world – called pencil beam scanning. This technique is highly effective for a wide variety of solid, localized tumors in adults and children. Along with pencil-beam scanning, these technologies allow for the most accurate application of proton radiation to the tumor. Learn more: http://www.mdproton.com
