The Beaumont Proton Therapy Center is armed with one of the most innovative and comprehensive image-guidance systems for proton beam therapy on the market today.
Located adjacent to the Rose Cancer Center at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, the Proton Therapy Center is a 10,000-square-foot space housing the 100-ton cyclotron and gantry. The single-room center features a spacious waiting room, private changing rooms, two anesthesia bays, consultation rooms and the treatment room, which includes a Phillips Ambience Light System that allows patients to choose their favorite theme for each treatment session.
The Beaumont Proton center is equipped by IBA’s Proteus One, to offer Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy, which combines Pencil Beam Scanning and 3-D Cone Beam CT, to target a tumor within less than a millimeter.
Beaumont is the first pencil beam scanning (PBS) proton center in Michigan. This technology is optimized for intensity modulated proton therapy (IMPT), the type of proton therapy that is both fastest to deliver, most precise, and with the best ability to spare healthy tissue.
With IMPT, doctors scan the tumor using the proton beam spot-by-spot and layer-by-layer. The adjacent critical normal structure will receive significantly minute radiation dose, which results in less damage to healthy tissue and decreased risk of secondary malignancies.
Beaumont’s Radiation Oncologists are world renowned leaders in radiation oncology, are experts in finding innovative applications for current technology to improve outcomes and offering numerous clinical trials to improve patient experience and outcomes
Leaders and innovators in advancing proton therapy treatment, including being the first proton therapy center in Michigan, the first center to offer pencil beam scanning, adding an on‐board CT scanner to improve precision and developing new treatment methods for treating mobile tumors.
