Our mission is "PRO VONO AEQUNOROSA” which means that we are dedicated to our patients. There is a Proton Therapy Center on our premises. Proton Beam Therapy (PBT) is recognized as a method for patients to receive treatment "without the need for an incision",'' without the need for admission to a hospital" and "with normal daily life". From October 2008 to December 2019, we have more than 5,200 cases of PBT therapeutical experience.
We provide Proton Beam Therapy combined with chemotherapy or other treatments and try to expand the indicated PBT patient population and improve the effectiveness of the treatment. To obtain governmental approval of the Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT), the clinical trial began in January 2016. BNCT is scheduled to begin in 2020.
We have been introducing equipment and technologies for radiation therapy such as Cyberknife and Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy (IMPT) and we have tried to enhance our knowledge in the past several years.
