Proton therapy is a form of radiation treatment that can precisely target and deliver high radiation doses to a tumour to kill cancerous cells. In this touchONCOLOGY interview, we speak with Dr Robert Mutter (Mayo Clinic Rochester, MN, United States) to tell us a little about proton therapy and its potential benefits in the treatment of breast cancer.
The abstract entitled ‘Phase II randomized trial of conventional versus hypofractionated post-mastectomy proton radiotherapy’ was presented at San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS), 06–10, December, 2022.
