Many types of cancers can now be treated with a new technology: cancer killing protons that precisely target tumors, sparing healthy tissue with less radiation. A particle accelerator creates the protons, which are delivered to the patient through a gantry. Beaumont is building the first single-room proton cancer treatment center in Michigan. The media is invited to attend the installation of the gantry, manufactured in Belgium.
Active construction site. Watch the 100-ton gantry being lowered into the Proton Therapy Center roof by a construction crane. Meet Beaumont’s chairman of Radiation Oncology; the construction project manager; along with cancer patients who have benefitted from lifesaving proton therapy.
