Proton therapy or proton beam therapy is a highly precise method of radiotherapy. The treatment is suitable for all patients regardless of age and as proton-therapy technology is continuously advancing, features such as rotational gantries, higher energies and larger fields have expanded the treatment's application to potentially any site in the body. IBA is the world leader and market pioneer of proton therapy.
Globally the penetration of proton therapy centers is highest in North America, mainly in the US, followed by Europe and Asia. The US retains the highest number of proton therapy centers and many are in development phase or under construction. Proton therapy technology has also made inroads in different countries as various governments are showing interest in this advanced technology. Proton therapy is still developing in Europe, mainly because of low awareness of this therapy and also because it is comparatively expensive. But as the therapy is getting acceptability because of its effectiveness, and this technology holds immense potential as evident in the growing number of proton centers across the world.
One of the chief arguments against the procedure of proton therapy is its massive cost as it is hugely expensive to set-up and deliver a proton beam therapy center. Further, new technology such as pencil beam scanning is coming up which has the ability to treat the most complex of tumors, while leaving healthy tissue and critical structures untouched. This technology is used with proton therapy and many new proton centers are adapting this technology.
