IBA Particle Therapy focuses on state-of-the-art solutions to enhance the effectiveness of radiotherapy for cancer treatment, while limiting its side effects. We are working around the clock to make it possible for more patients to take advantage of this treatment option. Particle therapy offers the same tumor-killing properties as traditional radiation treatment, but with decreased side effects and complications. While conventional x-ray radiation can damage healthy tissues, proton therapy uses precisely guided protons to attack tumors, minimizing damage to surrounding tissues.
